On the heels of two reported burglaries on August 17, prompting a collaborative sweep of Sag Harbor Village by Suffolk County Police Department helicopters, New York State Police K-9 units and Village Police officers, come four newly reported burglary incidents that Village Police said were related.
Last Wednesday, August 21, between 9:30 p.m. and 10:15 p.m., Village Police responded to reported burglary at a Madison Street home. Also August 21, Village Police were called to assist Southampton Town Police in investigating a reported late-night home invasion on Middle Line Highway.
The next day, Sag Harbor Police were called to an Oakland Avenue home after the resident reported several missing items taken sometime between August 20 and 22. On August 26, another Sag Harbor resident called Village Police to report that her home had been burglarized sometime between August 10 and August 15.
Village Police confirmed that the incidents, including previous reports that began in July of alcohol missing from houses whose screens had been cut, are all related. However, they declined to reveal additional information about the most recent incidents, including what items had been stolen, in order to not compromise an ongoing investigation.
Sag Harbor Village Police are asking residents to keep watch for suspicious behavior and call them at 725-0247 if they have any information regarding the cases. All calls will be kept confidential.
