The iconic Ditch Witch food wagon at the end of Otis Road at Ditch Plains was burglarized overnight Tuesday. On Wednesday morning, Grant Monahan, who runs the business with his sister, Abigail Monahan, posted a message on Instagram explaining why they were closed.

He explained in the post that the Plexiglas “barriers were smashed, our cash register broken into and destroyed.” He wrote that East Hampton police detectives had inspected the scene and taken away evidence for analysis. Monahan wrote that it is the first time the food wagon had ever been broken into in the 26 years since his mother, Lily Adams, started the business.
