East Hampton Town police last week charged two men and a Montauk teenager who were duck hunting from a blind on Fort Pond with trespassing, saying they had used a house on the pond, at 82 South Elroy Street, without permission. The men, Matthew Cuomo of Springs, 25, and James F. DePasquale, 24, of Montauk, were additionally charged with drawing electricity from the house. All the charges are misdemeanors.
A Springs man who has been wanted by the New York Police Department for over nine years was arrested in East Hampton Village Saturday morning and charged with driving while intoxicated. Police in Queens arrested him on the same charge in 2005, but he failed to appear in court and a warrant for his arrest has been outstanding ever since.
