The following information was supplied by the Southampton Village Police Department for the week of July 16 to 22. A criminal charge is only an accusation and does not indicate guilt.

• A 47-year-old Medford man was arrested after an argument over a parking space in the 7-Eleven parking lot on North Sea Road on July 17. The man, who is an employee at the convenience store, allegedly spit on the other man, menaced him with a knife and then broke off the side-view mirror on a 1996 Chevrolet. No one was injured. He was charged with criminal mischief in the fourth-degree, menacing in the second-degree, and criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth-degree, all misdemeanors, at about 6:40 p.m. He posted $250 bail and was released with an appearance ticket.

Police Say Defendant Carried a Lock Pick

• A 20-year-old Southampton man was arrested after he was allegedly found with lock picking tools on July 17. According to police, they received a 911 call at about 3:30 p.m. from a business owner who returned to his shop at 290 North Sea Road to find a man leaving the building, which was closed for business at the time. He fled on his bicycle, but was apprehended a short time later at the intersection of North Main Street and County Road 39. Police charged him with criminal trespass in the third degree and possession of burglars tools, both misdemeanors, at about 4 p.m. He was released with an appearance ticket.

The road rage and parking lot rage events occurred during the heat wave. Do you believe extremely uncomfortable weather could have been a factor?

I wonder why the names are now being left out, perhaps to hide the fact many of these crimes are committed by illegals. Cmmon Patch stop Pandering!

you need a license to own a gun but you don't need a license to drive a car. there are more and more car accidents involving illegals who do not have licenses. A car is a weapon. illegals do not have to pass any road test or written tests to drive. perhaps they need to be back on their bicycles. we need stricter penalties for those driving a weapon. giving out just a simple ticket does no justice. paying a simple small fine for driving without a license is no justice. When an illegal hits you and causes harm who pays?don't expect their insurance to pay because without a license they have no insurance. if we drive without a license and no insurance we are handcuffed. illegals get a ticket.
