SOUTHAMPTON - Suffolk's Social Service Commissioner Gregory Blass says there is a claim that Southampton police are bullying homeless sex offenders.

Blass says that on Wednesday night, police showed up at the country trailers near the Riverhead jail and demanded identification from people living there.

Blass tells Newsday police have made several visits to the trailers in the past three weeks.

Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne Holst says police are being called to the trailers.

However, Blass says there have been no issues requiring police since the trailers opened in 2006.
