East Hampton Police Reports for the Week of February 29

AMAGANSETT — A Northwest Woods resident, Oliver Dean Hoffman, 22, was arrested by East Hampton Town Police early Saturday morning on Main Street in Amagansett, on a charge of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fifth degree, a felony. The drug in question, police said, was cocaine. The charge is made when police believe that the amount of cocaine in a defendant’s possession is over a half gram in weight. Police said Hoffman had the cocaine in his right rear pocket inside a zip-lock plastic bag and admitted the plastic bag was his, saying he had gotten it from a friend, the arrest report indicates.
