Police Investigating Armed Robbery in East Hampton

Robber reportedly displayed handgun on the eve of Easter; Detectives on scene.

Police are searching for an armed robber who displayed a handgun at an East Hampton grocery store on Saturday night.

East Hampton Town police were called to the East Hampton IGA at 10:18 p.m., after a man reportedly robbed one victim with " a black Glock handgun," and then fled in a vehicle, according to an alert that was broadcast to neighboring police departments.

It was not immediately clear what the proceeds of the robbery were, and whether the robbery took place inside the grocery store or just outside of it. Police were not immediately available for comment.

The vehicle was last seen on Accabonac Road, heading south toward Montauk Highway.

The grocery store is located at 92 North Main St., on the corner of Collins Avenue. It is across from the East Hampton Village Emergency Services Building, which houses the village police department, but the grocery store is under town police jurisdiction.

Detectives were responding to investigate.

I'm thinking the Police are doing the best they can with the information they have, which I believe is not being broadcasted for a reason, We know that a robbery has taken place, an armed robbery, I feel that should be enough information at this point to keep your guard up, espicially buisness owners. I'm sure when they, the police, have something to tell us that is of value, they will. I'm thinking, if I were the one who had a gun pointing at me, how much information would I be able to pass along to the police, not sure, probably be too busy shaking out of my shoes and being grateful to be alive.
