In the span of about a month, two Audi’s were stolen in the greater Sag Harbor area, Southampton Town Police say.
One white 2011 A8 was reported missing from a residence in Noyac last week, and a blue 2006 A4 went missing in Bridgehampton sometime between late January and the middle of February, police say.
Police Chief Bill Wilson said he can’t speak as to whether or not the two incidents are related, as both cases are still under investigation.
The most recent incident was relayed to police last Wednesday, February 22, when a woman reported that her white 2011 Audi A8 was missing from her residence on Stony Hill Road in Noyac. She said she had parked her car in the driveway and left the keys in the ignition while the car was still running, police say. She then went into her residence to use the bathroom and when she came back outside, she reported that the car wasn’t there.
The timing of the other incident isn’t as precise. According to police reports, the blue 2006 Audi A4 convertible reportedly went missing from a parking lot on School Street in Bridgehampton sometime between Thursday, January 19 and Sunday, February 12.
Police say the car’s owner drove the vehicle to the long-term parking lot in Bridgehampton, before boarding a bus to the city. Her husband allegedly went to the lot on February 12 to collect the car and noticed the vehicle was missing.
Southampton Town Detectives are investigating both cases.
