Independent/T.E. McMurrow

East Hampton Town police are asking for the public’s help in locating two persons wanted for questioning in connection with a November 19 burglary of several trailers on a commercial property belonging to the landscaping company Tri-R Services Inc. Police said the pair stole landscaping equipment from the trailers on Learned Hands Road off Stephen Hands Path just north of the Long Island Rail Road train tracks.

One was described by police as being a “dark-skinned black male with a thin build, wearing a red-hooded sweatshirt, black pants, and Nike sneakers.” Police could not identify the race or sex of the other individual from the grainy surveillance video they were given, saying only that “the second suspect was wearing a brown jacket, blue jeans, and carrying a black backpack.”

Suffolk County Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for information leading to an arrest. Rewards can go as high as $5000.

East Hampton Town detectives can be reached at 631-537-6989, ext. 215, or callers can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
