Crimes Nearby: Woman Arrested After Gun Threat, Cops Say

The following information was supplied by the East End Police Departments. A criminal charge is only an accusation and does not indicate convictions.

A roundup of recent notable arrest elsewhere on the East End:


• Margaret McNamee, 33, of Flanders, was arrested Feb. 21 at 9:06 a.m. at home after her boyfriend told police that McNamee struck him in the face with a small wooden baseball bat, broke a picture frame on his wall — and threatened him with a gun. According to the arrest report, the incident occurred an hour and a half earlier at another address. McNamee was charged with menacing in the second degree, a felony, criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree, a misdemeanor, and harassment in the second degree, a violation.

East Hampton

• Eric Forgione, 27, of Islip, was arrested on Feb. 17 on charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree, as well as aggravated unlicensed operation, both misdemeanors.

Police said he was seen driving a car westbound on Montauk Highway while using a hand-held cellphone, and after stopping Forgione, police saw that his driving privileges in New York State were suspended exactly one week earlier for failing to answer a summons.

Police reports state that after he was informed he was under arrest, Forgione handed over a glass smoking device containing burnt marijuana, and a search revealed that he was holding what was later found to be hydrocodone.

He was released on a $100 appearance ticket.
