Cops: Attempted break-in nothing but a dream

A Mattituck woman called Southold police Friday night, saying that someone was banging on her door and trying to get into her residence on Westview Drive, authorities said.

An officer arrived at the house about 9:50 p.m. and interviewed the woman, who admitted that she may have “made a premature decision” by calling the cops, according to a police report.

The woman explained that she wasn’t sure if the incident she reported had actually happened because she had been sleeping. The officer told the woman to contact police if she encounters any problems in the future.
