Sag Harbor 7 Eleven Shutdown as Part of Homeland Security Sting

Early this morning the 7 Eleven in Sag Harbor was closed and heavily guarded by State Troopers and agents from the US Department of Homeland Security.  Based on reports from WPIX Channel 11 News, the closure was part of a broad operation by Homeland Security which raided 15 other 7 eleven stores, most in Suffolk County.  Visitors to 7 Eleven this morning looking for a morning coffee were asked to return to their vehicles and leave the parking lot by federal agents.  The store remains closed this morning and guarded by agents – more to come on the future of the Sag Harbor 7 Eleven.

About MySGH

While not a native myself, I married into a multi-generational Sag Harbor family and immediately grew fond of the place, which was one of my main drivers behind starting this website. My family now lives in Sag Harbor year-round and I hope to add an outsider's viewpoint, but with an appreciation of the local year-round perspective.

    OMG Another terrorist plot foiled right here in our own slice of heaven !!! And yet another reason to justify the government keeping track of my Verizon and ATT usage. I feel so safe knowing that big brother is watching over me.

    Really? 7-11? Isn’t that racial profiling?
