This week in the Hamptons, crime didn’t pay for a few employees of a store chain in Bridgehampton. And if you think driving over 200 miles per hour is worth filming, then you’d be Old Man McGumbus.
Five employees of a chain retail store in Bridgehampton were arrested for stealing. All five were caught taking about $1,000 in merchandise from the store. They were arrested, fired and are now without jobs, sort of caught between a rock and a hard place. Crime doesn’t pay, but neither does minimum wage these days.
Pot and Heroin
A man was arrested after he decided to smoke pot in the restroom of a gas station in Southampton, and it came to the attention of a police officer. When the man was questioned, he admitted to having heroin on his person. I don’t know about you, but these days, hard drugs are just out there more than they should be. Heroin wasn’t something that was common 10 years ago. WAKE UP!
Two men had a disagreement having to do with copper piping began arguing and soon police were called to one of the men’s residences. The other man simply refused to leave the property owned by the other. He was subsequently arrested for trespassing. I guess the homeowner just doesn’t like unwanted guests.

Be Careful Out There
A man is presumed dead after crashing his Jet Ski in Mecox Bay. After an extensive police search that is ongoing, so far he has not been found. There have been several deaths this summer season in the Hamptons involving reckless driving. For God’s sake be careful out there, people.
