• The manager of the Greenport IGA reported Sunday around 5:31 p.m. that a man, who police determined was homeless, was seen leaving the store with unpaid items. The manager said he saw the man leave with a six-pack of Modelo beer, valued at $13, and a six-pack of Corona beer, valued at $15. The manager told police he chased the man, who fled on foot. The manager was not interested in pressing charges, but wanted the items returned. Police located the man and had him return the items. He was advised that he is no longer welcome in the store.

• A Greenport woman told police last Tuesday around 12:10 p.m. that an unknown individual pulled three Douglas Elliman real estate signs out of the ground near Marratooka Road and New Suffolk Avenue in Mattituck.

The man was last seen on foot with another male, a backpack and papers in hand, headed toward Mattituck via New Suffolk Avenue. Officers canvassed the area with negative results and the man left the area prior to police arrival, but police advised the woman to call back if she saw him in the area again.
