An East Hampton Village officer patrolling Montauk Highway last Friday evening found an unoccupied 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee that had come to rest in woods just off the highway near Stephen Hand’s Path. The SUV had struck a utility pole before slamming into the trees, according to the police report.
The driver was nowhere to be found, but the officer heard noises in the woods that sounded like someone running away.
The owner of a two-acre Georgica Road estate reported to East Hampton Village police last Friday afternoon that back in May he discovered a complete sterling silver flatware set, including serving pieces, and many valuable pieces of china, missing from his basement, where they had been stored. An expensive black Prada dress was missing as well.
The value of the items stolen was estimated at over $10,000.
