Patrick Cantwell, the Amagansett fire chief, reported last week that on April 30 someone had removed a $2,500 portable fire radio from a room with a combination lock on the door. He had held off reporting the incident, hoping the radio might have been misplaced, the fire chief said, but now needed to report it missing for insurance purposes.
