The following information was supplied by the East Hampton Town Police Department. A criminal charge is only an accusation and does not indicate guilt.• Two men were arrested on drug charges outside of the Memory Motel in Montauk in the early morning hours of Sept. 1.
Police said they saw two men standing under a spotlight on the side of the motel on Montauk Highway at about 2:30 a.m. Police confronted the men, and noticed clear plastic baggies with a white powdery substance in their hands, they said. The substances later tested positive for cocaine.
Matthew W. Hull, 24, of St. James, was placed under arrest, and and a search found a second clear bag containing a white powdery substance in his pants pocket, police said.
