Numerous paintings were stolen from a First Neck Lane home sometime between Feb. 14 and 16, Southampton Village Police Department Chief William Wilson said Monday. It is the second reported art theft in the village this month.
Wilson said detectives are considering the strong possibility that the latest art theft, discovered by the estate's caretaker, is related to the , during which 13 paintings were reportedly taken.
Village police are coordinating the investigation with other police agencies, including Suffolk County Police and federal authorities, the chief said.
Wilson said since it is an active investigation, village police will not release further details at this time.
