NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Police on Long Island are investigating two cases where people are accused of trying to steal tips left for sanitation workers.

In the first case, Suffolk County police say that a Poquott man taped a tip to his garbage can for his sanitation workers.

The man says he saw a car pull up about 7:30 a.m. on Thursday.  Someone jumped out and grabbed the money.

The homeowner confronted the three people in the car and they sped off.  The homeowner started following them as he dialed 911.

A police officer found the car in a Setauket driveway.  Anthony Williamson, 20, who lives at the address, was arrested on larceny charges and the $200 tip was recovered.

Police were still searching for the two other suspects in that incident.

In the second case, a Stony Brook woman left a note on her garbage can to let her sanitation workers know there was a card at the front door for them.

The homeowner saw a woman take the note and then take the card.  The homeowner confronted the woman, who gave the card back and apologized.

The homeowner told the suspect she was calling police and the suspect ran away.  Police were able to find Denise Razzano, 29, of Centereach.  She was arrested and charged with larceny.

The Suffolk County Police Department suggested residents hand-deliver tips to sanitation workers.

    The rip current risk remains high along the New Jersey and New York coastlines. Some beaches were open to the public but closed to swimmers. The National Weather Service issued a High Surf Advisory and Rip Current Statement for the area beaches because of the effects of Hurricane Cristobal, which is expected to track south and east of the Jersey shore through Thursday.
