A Sag Harbor man facing a charge of petty larceny forgot the most basic maxim for criminals: make sure no one is watching.
Sag Harbor Village police said that at about 6:30 a.m. on March 31, Gregory P. Zaykowski, 34, was caught on surveillance cameras stealing car batteries from five vehicles parked at Harbor Heights service station on Hampton Road. Police were able to pinpoint the time because the service shop’s manager and former owner, Gregg Miller, ran back the video from the multiple surveillance cameras placed around the property.
Another week closer to April 15, and there are two more reports of scammers posing as Internal Revenue Service agents. Both incidents occurred last Thursday.
