Westhampton Beach Police Log: Donation Jar Stolen From 7-Eleven

Also, a homeowner says two 46-inch flatscreens, a 12-pack of Bud, and other items were stolen.

Editor’s Note: The following information was supplied by the Westhampton Beach Village Police Department. A criminal charge is only an accusation and does not indicate guilt.


An East Quogue man and bouncer at Casey’s Dance Hall was arrested last week after a man reported being assaulted by him.

Police arrested 31-year-old William Rash III at his home days after the reported assault on a warrant.

According to reports, a man was escorted from the bar by Rash around 2 a.m. on Nov. 22. The man reportedly became agitated while Rash was speaking with him, and was pushed by him, injuring his left arm.

Rash was arrested on charged of third-degree assault, a misdemeanor.

Petit Larceny

Police are investigating an reported theft that occurred on Dec. 2 at the Sunset Avenue 7-Eleven. According to reports, a white male entered the store between 6 and 6:15 p.m. and stood by the counter while a clerk was performing other tasks in the store.

Two other employees at the store told police that they noticed when the man left, a donation jar holding an estimated $500 in bills and coins was missing from the counter.

Police are waiting on security video footage.


A homeowner on Harbor Road, located off Dune Road, reported in late November that sometime between Nov. 23 at 3 p.m. and Nov. 26 at 10 a.m., the home had been robbed and two 46-inch flatscreens and a 12-pack of Budweiser had been stolen, along with several other items.

The homeowner said that points of entry into the home were located on the first floor, through an unlocked doorway, as well as a second-floor doorway, which reportedly had a rock thrown through it.

According to reports, a television, xBox and 12 Budweiser bottles were taken from the first floor.

From the second floor, the homeowner reported that another 46-inch TV, a Sony game console, two speakers, remote, blue ray player, and two pieces of jewelry were taken.

Police also said that two knives were misplaced in the home, likely used to cut wires from the TVs. Detectives are investigating the robbery.

Assault.. It is amazing that these customers of an establishment can become intoxicated, rude, abnoxious, and violent with other patrons and with the security at such establishments, but when a bouncer has to use force on an irate customer the poor security person is the accused. I find this absolutely appalling and unjust.
