Man arrested on warrant at Riverhead hotel

A 32-year-old Babylon man was arrested in Riverhead early Sunday morning for failing to appear in Southampton Town Justice Court in relation to a prior arrest, according to a police report.

Gabriel Gupacha was initially stopped by Riverhead Police and found to have a warrant out for his arrest, the report stated.

The warrant was issued because Mr. Gupacha failed to pay a fine after being arrested  by Southampton police for aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle in 2008, police said.

Southampton Town Police were contacted and responded to a Riverhead hotel to arrest Mr. Gupacha, according to the report.
