Arrests east of the Shinnecock Canal reported by Southampton Town police:

• A pair of women were charged with petty larceny after a K-Mart loss prevention employee reportedly spotted them placing over $260 in cosmetics goods in their bags and attempting to leave the store.

According to police, a 19-year-old woman from Fanwood, N.J. was seen placing over $90 in cosmetics into her bag, and an 18-year-old East Hampton woman attempted to take nearly $175 in goods. Both were arrested and brought to headquarters.

• Susan Fabula, 57, of Hampton Bays, was arrested on a misdemeanor DWI charge on Aug. 14 after police said she drove into a utility pole. According to a police report, Fabula was involved in a motor vehicle accident near the intersection of Montuak Highway and Ocean Road around 11 p.m. Police said that upon arrival, Fabula – the only person in the SUV – had an odor of alcohol on her breath and when asked if she had anything to drink, stated that she had.

• Travis Iacone, 20, of Southampton, was arrested on a charge of DWI and criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree, both misdemeanors, on Aug. 13. Police said that Iacone failed to stay in his lane while driving eastbound on Montauk Highway, near Canoe Place Road, around 12:45 a.m.

After being pulled over, Iacone was reportedly found to have an odor of alcohol on his breath, slurred speech and was unsteady on his feet. Police said he performed poorly on standard field sobriety tests and had Xanax in a baggie.
