A non-functioning brake light led to a marijuana arrest for one Flanders man, according to police.

Raymond Normoyle, 24, of Fern Avenue in Flanders was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana last Tuesday after being pulled over on Squiretown Road in Hampton Bays for having a brake light out, according to police.

He was found to be in possession of marijuana following the traffic stop, which took place near the intersection with Old Riverhead Road, police said.

• A Mattituck woman reported last Thursday that someone had keyed her car, which was parked at a home on Ludlam Avenue in Riverside. The incident is believed to have taken place on Jan. 13, according to police, who said the front and rear passenger doors were scratched by a key.

• A Flanders woman reported last Thursday that someone slashed the two front tires on her car, which was parked outside her home. The woman said she heard some activity outside her house around midnight on the night the tires were punctured. No arrests had been reported at presstime, according to police.

Those who are named in police reports have not been convicted of any crime or violation. The charges against them may later be reduced or withdrawn, or they may be found innocent.
