East Hampton Village police are investigating a trespass report a house on Talmage Lane just before the New Year.

In a report released on Wednesday morning, police said they were called to the house, just around the corner from village police headquarters at the Emergency Services Building on Cedar Street, after guests of the homeowner arrived to find two alleged trespassers there on Dec. 30 at about 11 a.m.

A 31-year-old man and a woman, whose age was not disclosed, did not have the homeowner's permission to be there, according to police. Their names were not released.

The couple, whom police spoke to inside the house, were not arrested, though the homeowner does wish to pursue charges, police said.

The matter was turned over to the detective division.

Chief Jerry Larsen said on Wednesday that the investigation was ongoing and he was not able to release any further details at this time. The report released Wednesday was not a final report.

Oh yeah. Lets see what truth comes up. Could be possible that martin ends up behind bars after finding out that the police man he described wasn't him. Retaliation could be that "man law" pressing charges against you and putting cuffs around you himself. Martin be very careful driving around town because even if he was the one he could keep his job. Good luck all.
Jessi January 15, 2014 at 11:10 PM
Could be no firings, no charges, but martin moving out to a different state, perhaps a different country.

Emily has BLIND faith in the legal system, and Jessi says we should be AFRAID and look the other way. Are you people serious ? What's next ?
MARTIN DREW January 16, 2014 at 09:49 AM
Jessi - I could be wrong .. my info tells me differently ... Probably not keeping the job ... I have faith that justice is served - no matter how cold .. I already live in other places .. you worry about you - I'm good. EH law enforcement knows how to find me when and IF they need to. As citizen they know I do my best to be part of our great community. Respect is a two way street . The BLUE men of this community know I support law enforcement - even when it comes my way .. they protect and serve us well - in this case - slow to act - but I have confidence that ALL will surface .. Thnx for YOUR concern that retaliation is my expectation . I'm sorry to disagree - the law is the the law and even I have rights that protect even me. Just know justice served cold is still justice in the end . Just desserts all around I say .. Let's see shall we .. this is how rumors start - when media plays politics - and leaves us to assume .. let's see how my sources worked out - go from there -
MARTIN DREW January 16, 2014 at 10:05 AM
Just a FYI - POLICE DEPT . did reply to MARTIN DREW SHOW inquiry .. news release FRIDAY - Stay tuned - SORRY PATCHERS- you have to wait for official statement ... let's be patient ... The POLICE will inform us all FRIDAY! As BONAC turns ...
Jessi January 16, 2014 at 10:33 AM
Ok martin. Lets see what happens friday. As you say justice is justice
Emily Bee January 16, 2014 at 01:03 PM
Martin, Thanks for the update about Friday. I really thought they would just blow you off and bury you under a mountain of FOIA requests when you inquired about an updated press statement. Oh. I forgot, tomorrow is the monthly village board meeting at 11 am, which I bet will probably be followed by an executive session. That part is secret, never to be known by the general public! We'll see what happens.
Jessi January 16, 2014 at 01:37 PM
Emily how much are you beibg paid to defend the wrongdoings of others
Emily Bee January 16, 2014 at 03:54 PM
Jessi, who are we talking about doing the wrongdoing here? The male and female allegedly found unlawfully in a private residence or a government entity being a target of rumors that there may have be some type of so called cover-up. I might look as to how this couple came to be in that residence in the first place. I mean did they KNOWINGLY enter this residence unlawfully, or is it more involved? My bet is the owner decides not to pursue the matter and nothing comes of it. I could be wrong however. But that would be the best course of action to get any criminal charges out of the way first. Then handle it simply as a disciplinary action within the agency involved, if any conduct problems were found.

Jessi seems to insinuating threats by the police to anyone who stands up against them. Wrong is wrong Jessie whether you are a cop or not.
local Business owner January 16, 2014 at 04:16 PM
How many times has Mario done this. You can't go around giving out tickets and following cars and reprimanding all wrong doing and then not take your licks when it's your turn
local Business owner January 16, 2014 at 05:30 PM
The local newspapers had no coverage this week. I find that very disappointing
Bonac Refugee January 16, 2014 at 08:57 PM
The silence from the Village Police Dept. is certainly deafening. Nothing to see here folks move along!!!!!!!!!!
MARTIN DREW January 17, 2014 at 11:32 AM
Did a Press Release happen ? Justice served cold ? Is the ball of wax in Jeapordy? Firings ? Who got the pic of " the officer in question " ? " the other conspiritor"? Did THEY get arrested ? Will MARTIN be in cuffs ? as BONAC TURNS .. lol
Emily Bee January 17, 2014 at 02:59 PM
Martin, The still unidentified 31 year old officer was relieved of his weapon and badge and put on leave. Charges, both criminal and departmental could still be filed at a later date pending later investigation.. I'll leave Taylor to fill in with a page one story I assume she will be writing this PM.
Emily Bee January 17, 2014 at 03:11 PM
Martin, Followup, The unidentified woman also found in the house was a 20-year-old part-time house cleaner. It should be noted that in an earlier story in another newspaper said the female was a village employee . That may or may not be true. I believe the village contracts cleaning out to private firms nowadays and may or may not have done away with it's own custodians. Some one might know more on that subject.
local Business owner January 17, 2014 at 03:55 PM
Emily how do you know this before anyone else?
Emily Bee January 17, 2014 at 07:42 PM
Local business owner, Tweeted by 27 East about an hour before published here. Just what I predicted. Seen it a dozen times. Does not make it right though.......em
MARTIN DREW January 18, 2014 at 09:24 AM
Let's contact District Attorney Spota's office .. ask if he's known about this kind of conduct occurring a dozen times .. in his county ? POLICE are above the laws ? Esp. here in EAST HAMPTON .. What are THEY afraid of ? What does this 31 - yr old unidentified male have on THEM ? As concerned citizens - people are talking " P.O. WOOD " as a underlying contributor to the HANDLING of this SPECIAL CASE and the employee(s) involved ... She lost her job .. he gets administrative leave ... ? SPOTA / THIELE / CUOMO - are you allowing POLICE to be treated differently than the citizens you serve and protect ? $50 million reasons to wonder how this obvious double standard is allowed to happen - maybe my civil rights have been violated in the past - ? Makes for some $eriou$ thought - KEEP DIGGING TAYLOR - WOOD - $50 million - something $tink$- Officer caught with Pants down... who else is afraid of getting caught with theirs down .. and NOT liking the publicity ... Makes one wonder .. ?? Tresspassing not a crime anymore?
MARTIN DREW January 18, 2014 at 01:23 PM
Jessi- are you still in BONAC ? I'm not - Sure not worried about man law hunting me ..lol .. Justice served cold is justice served... 1- down ; 1 to go... heard he won't be missed - The POLICE have better things to do than harrassing me .. Sorry you live a pranoid life and fear only my where abouts or driving skills -- which cop are you married to ? Let's applaud the obvious double standard being applied - to the cop caught with his gun and badge in the wrong place - at the wrong time ... with no fear of consequence ... in lawful... bounds set by society .. ob well -- REMEMBER -- do as I say .. not as I do .. Obama/ Fema - leading the way .. over your dead body .. Get it yet?
local Business owner January 21, 2014 at 11:01 PM
Who are the other bad cops?
MARTIN DREW January 21, 2014 at 11:33 PM
Wait for it ... it's just around the corner .. the iceberg ... down goes the Titanic ..
"Pride of Bonac" January 29, 2014 at 10:05 AM
I commend Martin Drew for having the courage to challenge the inappropriate actions by our trusted Authorities and for sticking this out until justice is prevailed
MARTIN DREW January 29, 2014 at 01:37 PM
Thnx Pride of Bonac - Did you hear about the NEXT VILLAGE PD - embarrassment ? Blue on Blue workplace harrassment - false DMV accusations affecting another offier under the same roof . Holding back of pay due this officer against civil service law - WHILE Mario is being paid - one person has their salary withekd affecting their life ability to function while MARIO on paid vacation - what happwnef to equal trestment under the law . for some reason PATCH won't report on this disgraceful conduct known by the DA's office .. and on down the line.... time the VILLAGE clean their act up ... another officer screwing with anothers private medical issues in a effort to get them fired? Holding back rightful pay .. and no NEWS coverage or concern ... hmmm ... inquiring minds deserve truth justice and the American way .. who is controlling the lack of media coverage in this hot potatoe ? Call the DA office fir a comment .. heard they are INVESTIGATING ; but not one perp frim media -- ALL the while Mario still has a job - being paid - on bacation while NO CHARGES forthcoming ... TIME FOR JUSTICE -- even the BLUE GUYS --- are nit above the law .. dig a little .. it's REAL NEWS ... c'mon PATCH WUZ UP -- heard PATCH has the scoop - but sitting on it ? why?

MARTIN DREW January 29, 2014 at 01:43 PM

"Pride of Bonac" January 30, 2014 at 08:52 AM
It's Really a " Big Shame " that the Trusted Authorities of this town need to be Watchdogged by concerned citizens who Only are seeking fair justice for everyone -- with No Double Standards
local Business owner January 30, 2014 at 08:58 AM
Why hasn't the mayor or chief said anything. Everywhere else there is a press conference. The public wants answers.these people think they are above the law. The mayor and chief need to go
MARTIN DREW January 30, 2014 at 09:22 AM
I DON'T think the Mayor and Chief need to go persay .. BUT THEY .. should in the profession of leadership .. grab ALL this nonsense by the HORNS and wrestle the truth as they would tell it ... like ROB FORD of Canada fame ... it is what is is but own up to it - we'll decide as the public to accept your integrity or deny your willingness to duck and cover . JOBS - carreers all come to a end don't let others actions affect your personal integrity as LEADERS - I have respect for both men - BUT- gentlemen the PUBLIC WANTS INFO AND ANSWERS - and WE all expect EQUAL treatment under our laws ... PLAIN AS THE SKY is BLUE -- THE stink needs wiping up - the good need advancement and life goes on - but it's time our leaders act as such - even IF it puts you in a bind for any reason - PEOPLE respect honesty and have forgiveness in their capacities - BUT CONTINUE TO ACT AS IF ABOVE ACCOUNABILITY - expect the people to bring you down - A PRESS CONFERENCE - at LOCAL TV - tell the local community the facts as you know it - decide a course of actuon that JOE CITIZEN has to live with - END NOW the special treatment - We are now the global town of perceived corruption .. I know right from wrong - and so does the public you serve ... all this hiding from dealing with several problems is WRONG as the day is LONG .... Engage YOUR community head on and let us digest the content . PROTECT AND SERVE - A hard job indeed .. now find your way to the microphone and tv lens ... it's time WE THE PEOPLE - be informed !!! Godspeed Gentlemen !
