Southampton Town Police said they charged the 20-year-old man, whom they described as homeless, and the 17-year-old Riverhead woman with indecent exposure, a violation, after they were spotted about to engage in sex on the side of the fast-food restaurant at around 4:45 p.m. on August 31. Both had their private parts exposed, according to their arrest reports.
The man, who police said often resides in Flanders and Riverside, was also found with a quantity of weed and charged with unlawful possession of marijuana, also a violation.
Both were taken to police headquarters in Hampton Bays for processing and later released on field appearance tickets.

A Speonk man was duped out of $1,350 last month by a man claiming to be a representative of a sweepstakes.
Though he could not recall the exact date, the victim, a retiree, told Southampton Town Police that a man called him about three weeks ago to inform him that he had won $2 million and a new Mercedes-Benz. In order to claim his winnings, the victim was told he would first have to pay $1,350 in fees. The man said he purchased three Green Dot MoneyPak prepaid cards in amounts of $350, $500 and $500, and provided the caller with the numbers to access the money.
The victim said he did not receive the money or car.
Police are investigating the incident.
A Bridgehampton woman discovered on Friday that more than $5,000 worth of new appliances had been stolen from her Mid Ocean Road home.
The woman told Southampton Town Police that she purchased the house earlier this summer, but because she did not plan to move in until September, she allowed the individual who was renting the home to remain there until after Labor Day.
The victim told authorities that she had multiple items that she purchased from Bloomingdale’s shipped to the house at various points this summer, but did not learn that they had been stolen until she moved in on September 6. She told police that she suspects that the tenant might have taken the items before moving out.
The items reported stolen included: a coffee maker valued at $3,000, two sets of pots and pans—one valued at about $1,500 and the other at $380—and a toaster worth $180.
Police said they are investigating the incident.
