Carlson Jacobs of East Hampton was walking on Tyrone Drive in Springs in the early evening of Nov. 5 when he was struck by a southbound vehicle which then left the scene. Mr. Jacobs wound up in nearby brush. He was reportedly knocked woozy, according to the police report. Officers brought him to police headquarters and then to Southampton Hospital, suffering what was described as minor bleeding to his head.
Kathlena Williams of Mako Lane in Amagansett reported to town police at a little after 3 a.m. on Nov. 3 that she had seen a young man outside her house, apparently about to siphon gasoline from her parked car.
“You’re not going to do that, no way!” she reportedly screamed, scaring the youth, who took off running, with a gas canister in hand, then sped away in a red 2001 Chevy.
