Sag Harbor Village police arrested Nikola K. Warm of Germany last Thursday at 11:15 a.m. and charged her with endangering the welfare of a child. She was arrested after a traffic control officer alerted police that a 2008 Toyota Prius parked outside 35 Main Street had two small children in car seats locked inside with windows slightly cracked for ventilation, the police report said.
The temperature reached 82 degrees in Sag Harbor that day, according to the National Weather Service.
Between July 28 and last Saturday a thief or thieves went on a crime spree during the early-morning hours, rifling through unlocked cars parked in driveways in East Hampton and Springs. Most often, they stole global positioning systems.
East Hampton Town police have received at least 10 complaints to date, and say there may be more that have not been reported.
