Land surveyors working outside a vacant Atlantic Avenue house in Amagansett reported finding several bagsful of beer and liquor bottles on the property on Nov. 1.
East Hampton Town police had received a report two days earlier, the day after Hurricane Sandy, that the basement door to a neighboring house had been kicked in and several bottles of alcohol stolen. On Nov. 2, that same house was broken into in the same way. This time, however, a piece of clothing was left behind, leading police to the home of a local 16-year-old.
The nighttime prowlers who have been targeting unlocked vehicles parked in various Montauk neighborhoods struck again early last Thursday morning, this time in the North Farragut Road area, but without as much taken as the week before, when they made off with thousands of dollars worth of electronic devices.
Robert Gosman Jr. reported his Chevy pickup truck rummaged through, but nothing taken. John D’Agostino’s Jeep was also gone through, but again, nothing taken.
