    An iPhone 4S was stolen from the console of a parked car on Aug. 5. Michael Scher of Springs told police he had left it in his 2012 Audi for 10 minutes. That night, he told police, he’d been alerted that the phone’s signal had been picked up from the Wave Crest motel and condominiums on Napeague. Due to the large number of residents in the complex, police were not able to follow up.

    Metal Posts and Sand Fencing

        The East Hampton Town Board was presented Tuesday with recommendations made by a committee that examined rules on beach fencing.
