  • East Hampton Village

    A caller told police on the afternoon of Dec. 12 that a small dog, a terrier, had been leashed to a shrub on Newtown Lane for some time, in front of several shops. As an officer tried to coax the dog out from under the shrub, it got free of its collar and ran off, leaving the collar, with tags, behind. Police notified the owner of the incident; it is not known if dog and owner were reunited.
