• Police were called to a Peconic Lane address in Peconic last Thursday to investigate a landlord-tenant dispute.

• On Friday, police responded to Vineyard View Apartments in Greenport West to investigate a dispute over the sale of a car. A resident of the complex told police he sold a car to a Central Islip man and that the man owed him $400 and wouldn’t pay it “because the vehicle wasn’t what he expected.” Police told the parties this is a civil matter and to leave each other alone.
