Some residents in Springs came home earlier this week to find notices from the East Hampton Town Police Department, warning of criminal activity in their neighborhood.

Detective Lt. Chris Anderson said on Wednesday that there were three reports of items being stolen from cars on Montauk Boulevard, Seabright Avenue and Hildreth Place.

Over the past few years, there are have been several rashes of larcenies from vehicles.

Anderson said the most recent thief or thieves have been working in "a concentrated area."

"As a result, we try to notify neighboring residents to the victims in the event that there's unreported larcenies. At the same time, we're alerting neighbors to be vigilant," Anderson said.

In all three cases, the cars were left unlocked.

Police recommend locking parked vehicles and removing all personal items. Any suspicious activity should be reported to the East Hampton Town police. They can be reached at 631-537-7575.

no, I will not give you names of people....not my place to do that...these things do not occur in areas where there are multi million dollar homes b cause, group rentals during the peak season are not allowed there....The group rentals occur in less affluent areas & you know that...and i do not think hat your local politicians who cater to your wealthy clientele really care what happens or does not happen in less affluent areas...so, again, wait all you want b cause i am not giving you addresses or locations or names of employees because that is not a cool thing to do....it has been reported to the town but local politicians have to want to give a damn about group rentals & all that entails with that sort of thing between the months of may -september which are the peak months of group vacation rentals from urban folks...This conversation is officially over b cause you are in desperate need of reading comprehension skills.....have a good day & think what you want to think...

people have called the town & the Health Dept & removal of such waste has been done by people who do that sort of thing....it has not been made public & lets see if you can figure out why it would not be made public....They do not want to scare tourists & other potential group vacation renters so of course it is kept under the radar....So, you can just say what you want to say, call me a liar or whatever other names who wish to do so , I am not providing you with locations or names of residents & employees.....

"This conversation is officially over b cause you are in desperate need of reading comprehension skills.....have a good day & think what you want to think..." And then you go on Melpo. . . blah, blah, bla is exactly right. And do tell us who is the "they" that "do not want to scare tourists & other potential group vacation renters?" Just who would not want to scare away people who shit in plastic pails & deliver the goods to a favorite neighbor? Where are they getting all these plastic pails? Are "they" the people who answered the phone at the 911 dispatch center or the person who answers the phone in the supervisor's office or the town operators who want to keep this HEALTH THREAT a secret? Must they all be conservative republicans, too? You should have ended the conversation much earlier, Melpo, nevertheless, yr written English is natively idiomatic, awfully good for a Latino or a local, native-born huckster who wants to establish innocence from prejudice or dishonesty by claiming to be Latino or just an exemplar citizen. "They" and not the dastardly conservative republican politicians who cater to the wealthy might be the real culprits keeping us in the dark about this imminent health threat. Phu--leeze Louise, do tell us who are these "they" conspiring to ruin our health by keeping us in the dark about these pail shiters or pale sitters.
