East Hampton Police Reports for the Week of July 18

EAST HAMPTON VILLAGE — An East Quogue man, Matthew William Scott, 39, was arrested by East Hampton Village Police on June 25 on three misdemeanor charges of criminal contempt in the second-degree, for, police said, violating a court order of protection. It is at least his sixth arrest by Village Police on contempt charges since January. As has occurred several times after these arrests, information about the arrest was not released to the media during the weekly Village Police press release, which takes place every Monday. In all, Scott has 24 open charges of criminal contempt or similar counts in East Hampton Justice Court, including one felony charge of criminal contempt in the first degree. The incident that brought about the latest arrest, according to the criminal complaint on file at the Justice Court, occurred on June 8 when Scott used different forms of social media to communicate with a person he has been ordered not to contact. Besides the charges in East Hampton, Scott also has three open charges of criminal contempt in the second-degree in Suffolk County court. The original order of protection he was said to have violated was issued by a judge in Family Court on December 29. Within two days of that order being issued in family court, Scott was arrested for the first time by Suffolk County Police for a misdemeanor that, they said, occurred on January 1.

WAINSCOTT — Josh A. Gladstone, 56, was charged with a misdemeanor by East Hampton Town Police, alleging a town code violation, littering on premises, in the early morning hours of July 7. Police charged Gladstone as the person responsible at LTV for a large amount of littering on premises and on the surrounding public roadway, “following a large gathering event which was held at the above listed premise,” the criminal complaint reads. Police said that LTV “did fail to maintain receptacles for the collection of said litter.” The litter, the charging documents states, “included open alcoholic beverages, plastic, cups, and miscellaneous debris.” Gladstone will be arraigned in East Hampton Town Justice court on the charge on Monday.

AMAGANSETT — A Hicksville man, Sean Patrick Flynn, 29, was charged with petty larceny, a misdemeanor, by Town Police the morning of July 7. Police said that Flynn pumped 12 and a half gallons of gasoline at the Gulf station in Amagansett and then drove off without paying. He was pulled over west of the gas station about an hour later. He was arrested and booked on the charge then released with an appearance ticket to be arraigned in East Hampton Town Justice court in the coming days.

EAST HAMPTON — A 70-year-old East Hampton woman reported to Police on July 10 that in the months of March and April, someone had taken over her Social Security account, and had the funds that she was due directed to another bank. The woman said she had been in contact with the Social Security Administration about the matter, and officials told her that she needed to get documentation from the police about the event.

AMAGANSETT — A former leaseholder on a horse farm on Town Lane entered the barn area the morning of July 10 and became irate with an employee of the horse farm. The current leaseholder of the barn asked police to issue a trespass warning against the unwelcome visitor, which they did.

MONTAUK — The bedroom window on a Hoppin Avenue house was smashed with a propane tank in the afternoon on July 3. The misdemeanor criminal mischief crime was reported on July 5 to police. A suspect was identified to the police, but the victim asked that the incident only be documented and did not want to press charges at that time.

SPRINGS — The owner of a Harrison Avenue property with a swimming pool reported to police that the pool’s heater had been stolen at some point between when he closed down the property in September of last year and July 4. The property owner told police he had no idea who would’ve stolen the heater.

SPRINGS — Administrators at the East Hampton Town Senior Center on Springs Fireplace Road reported in June that at some point over the previous two weeks, two windows had been damaged, apparently by someone shooting a pellet gun.
