A call came in to East Hampton Town police late Sunday morning reporting a white Toyota being driven erratically westbound on Montauk Highway. An East Hampton Village police officer spotted the car, parked outside Brent’s Deli. The Montauk woman behind the wheel told police she had been “involved in a little road rage with another vehicle because she passed him on the Napeague stretch.” The other car was long gone, police said.

A man and a woman who drive for the same East Hampton cab company “do not get along,” according to a police report. Police said the woman was waiting for a fare at the Hampton Jitney stop outside the Huntting Inn on Friday night when the man came over “and smacked the window of her vehicle,” stating, “Mind your own business.” They promised police that in the future they would keep their distance from each other.


A fraudulent phishing expedition failed early last month after a Gates Avenue woman notified police, according to the incident report. Jane Desousa had received by priority mail a Navy Federal Credit Union check for almost $5,000. The check was from what appeared to be a prospective employer, and Ms. Desousa was instructed to deposit it in her account, deduct $600, and then wire the remaining balance to Eric Edo in Sweden. Instead, she called the police, who called the bank in question. They were told that the check was fraudulent and that the same account number had been used in other recent attempts at fraud. Brian Sanders, the Montauk postmaster, has notified postal inspectors.
