It was a relatively quiet week on the roads for the East Hampton Town police through Monday morning, but early September 15, Stephen Cohen, 34, of Brewster, was driving a 2015 Ford F-150 pickup truck when he was pulled over early Sunday morning on West Lake Drive in Montauk for allegedly swerving over lane lines and driving without his headlights on. Failing sobriety tests, East Hampton Town police placed Cohen under arrest.
Police also reported finding over half a gram of cocaine in the cabin of the truck. Cohen allegedly told police the cocaine belonged to someone who had been a passenger in his pickup earlier September 15. He was charged with a felony possession of cocaine on top of a misdemeanor DWI charge.
He was released later Sunday morning after being arraigned on $250 bail.
