Lindsey Ackerson, 27, of Moriches was arrested in Flanders Monday evening for driving without a license, police said.

Reports said Ms. Ackerson was stopped at the intersection of Flanders Road and Cypress Ave for a traffic violation. Upon further investigation, police found she had a revoked state driver’s license for 11 suspensions on five dates for failure to answer summonses.

Ms. Ackerson was arrested and charged with two violations, operating a motor vehicle without a license and driving while using a portable electronic device, and aggravated unlicensed operation in the second degree with two or more open suspensions on three or more separate dates, a misdemeanor.

• Police are investigating a report of an unknown suspect entering a Northampton home between 7:20 a.m. and 3:10 p.m. last Tuesday and stealing over $250 in goods, reports said.

An unknown suspect allegedly broke into a home on Wildwood Trail when the homeowner was away. It’s unclear how the suspect entered the home. Reports said the individual stole gold earrings, a necklace and a camera worth $50.

The suspect would be charged with burglary in the third degree, a class D felony.
