The following are incident reports released by the this week:

East Hampton

Several pieces of jewelery have gone missing — totaling $18,768 — from a house on Island Road between April and August. Among the items were a David Yurman bracelet, worth $1,400, a ring, worth $600, and a watch worth $700, all of which was reported stolen on Aug. 11.

Police were dispatched to a call of an automatic alarm at a house on Buck's Path on Aug. 2 at about 4:30 a.m. Officers found the rear sliding door was open. Detectives and the Suffolk County Sheriff's K-9 unit were called to the scene. They said it appeared that nothing was taken and the alarm scared them away.


Police said that on July 15, a Montauk man was walking across The Plaza on Main Street and was assaulted by a passenger in a car that stopped abruptly in front of him, at a stop sign. The driver put his hands up and appeared annoyed that he had to stop and the passenger grabbed the pedestrian by his shirt. The pedestrian told police that he threw a punch to break free, but suffered some "a completely shattered nose" that required 20 stitches under his left eye. He filed a report at the police precinct and Montauk Fire Department ambulance personnel transported him to the hospital.

As two men were fighting in the parking lot of the Cross Eyed Clam, another man tried to step in and separate them, but fell to the ground himself, knocking his teeth out. He was able to locate his teeth and took a taxi to Southampton Hospital. He saw an oral surgeon and had the teeth "re-attached," according to the police report. A cut on his lip required five stitches. After several conversations with police, the suspect agreed to reimburse the victim for his medical expenses, which total $4,900.

A Holtsville man reported $5,450 in watches stolen from his vehicle that was parked in a parking lot off Main Street on Aug. 14 and 15. He said that he has a watch case in the back of 2003 GMC that holds six watches. The Bulova watch and two Rip Curl watches were taken, but the more expensive watches were left behind. A Tag Heuer, worth $4,400, was stolen from the glove compartment. Police noted the GMC's windows were left down overnight.


A resident of Muir Blvd. told police someone poured sugar into his gas tank on his 1992 Ford Mustang convertible sometime between Aug. 4 and 8.


An employee of Hertz told police four rental cars parked at the East Hampton Airport had blue cleaner/detergent, syrup, eggs, and baking flour thrown at them overnight on Aug. 9. There was no damage reported to the three 2012 Chevrolets and one 2012 Nissan, but a criminal mischief affidavit was signed.

Hey Holtsville Idiot. Don't leave $6,000 in watches in your car with the windows down over night. That is NOT theft, that is insurance fraud or simple stupidity. What a moron - honestly.

I can remember when the only entry on the Montauk police blotter was a stolen bicycle pump!

Now come on Fran Browner, you know better than that. But it has gotten a lot worse since you've been gone.
