A Shelter Island woman was arrested by East Hampton Village police the morning of Thursday, November 14, accused of stealing a Moorcroft vase, valued at more than $3000, from The 1770 House on Main Street. The theft occurred on the night of November 5, the police said.
Kelci Anne McIntosh, 32, was visited at her home on Shelter Island by two detectives, who took her into custody, charging her with grand larceny and possession of stolen property. McIntosh, when confronted by police, allegedly turned the vase over to the detectives.
McIntosh’s photograph had been picked out by a witness from a series of images the witness was shown. McIntosh was taken by police to the East Hampton Village Police headquarters, where she allegedly waived her Miranda rights, and signed a document admitting guilt.
She was released with an appearance ticket to be arraigned in East Hampton Town Justice Court next month.
