Southampton Blotter: Woman arrested for driving without a license

01/13/2019 6:00 AM |

A Riverhead woman whose license had previously been revoked for a driving while intoxicated was arrested last Wednesday after police stopped her for driving with heavily tinted windows, according to Southampton Town police.

Cindy Alvarado, 24, was charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, a misdemeanor, and two violations related to the tinted windows. Police also said her vehicle was not equipped with a mandated interlock device.

She was stopped at the intersection of Center and Nugent drives around 4 p.m. State vehicle and traffic law does not allow a windshield or front side windows to block more than 30 percent of light. Ms. Alvarado’s vehicle provided only 2 percent of light, police said.

• Alfonso Rustrianpixtun, 18, of Riverhead was arrested last Wednesday for aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, a misdemeanor. He was stopped at the intersection of Flanders Road and Bellows Pond Road in Hampton Bays at 9:24 p.m. for a traffic violation, police said.

A check of his driving history revealed he had two license suspensions from July 2018 for failure to answer a summons. A bench warrant had also been issued for him out of Riverhead Town Justice Court, police said.

• A man allegedly stole candy while exiting the Flanders 7-Eleven Saturday evening, according to reports.

Two men were walking toward the door around 7 p.m. when one of them swiped a pack of Sour Patch Kids, priced at $2.15, that was on display next to the door. Both men were gone when a responding officer arrived.

The suspects were not located.

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 The charges against them may later be reduced or withdrawn, or they may be found innocent.
