Alexis M. Griffin, 28, of Orient was arrested for DWI just after 11 p.m. on Dec. 26, after she was stopped for driving her 2008 Prius the wrong way down one-way North Street in Greenport.

She was held overnight for a morning arraignment.

• A Mattituck woman is facing a DWI charge after police pulled her over for driving erratically on Sound Avenue Dec. 23., Riverhead Town police said Carole Bissett, 47, was driving her Jaguar on the shoulder and at times the center median near Oakleigh Avenue before she was pulled over about 11:30 p.m.

• A Kaplan Avenue, Greenport, resident reported that someone wearing a gray hood and a black puffy vest was staring in her bedroom window when she woke at 5:15 a.m. on Dec. 21. The suspect fled.

• Someone reportedly stole $300 worth of coins in a horse vitamin jar in a Main Bayview Road resident’s home sometime between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. on Dec. 22. Police said the suspect likely entered through an unlocked garage door.

• A Route 48, Southold woman reported her laptop had been stolen from her bedroom while she was away from home on the evening of Dec. 23. Police said the thief apparently gained access by sliding a tool between the door lock and the jamb.

• A New Suffolk Ave., Mattituck resident reported a pair of long johns, boxer shorts, white socks, a red T-shirt and a Santa Claus hat were stolen from her clothesline sometime between 12:30 a.m. and 6 a.m. Christmas morning. She said the clothing must have been cut off the line, since it was attached using plastic ties.

A Wabasso Street, Southold resident reported on Jan. 1 that someone had ransacked his house, opening all the drawers in the kitchen and bedrooms, throwing a television set on the floor and knocking over the fireplace mantle, while he was away at work.

He told police he had kicked some people out of a New Year’s party he’d had the previous night and he believed the mess might have been their retaliation. Nothing was reported missing.

• Two Sutton Place, Greenport residents reported damage to their properties just after 2 a.m. on Jan. 1, after hearing several youths yelling and screaming in front of their homes. One resident said Christmas decorations were damaged, and another reported damage to a mailbox and a side view car mirror.
