Here are the top stories today in Southampton:

  1. Suffolk County Police Financial Crimes Unit detectives are investigating a scam that involved a Bernalillo, New Mexico, resident in believing he’d won the lottery. All that was needed was $8,500 in fees to collect his prize. Police learned the cash would be shipped to a location in Southampton Village and waited at the location.

Anyone who believes they may be a victim of a scam or have information about a scam to call the Financial Crimes Unit at 631-852-6821. (Southampton Patch)
