Southampton Blotter: Driver with suspended license arrested

Southampton Town police arrested Jhesica Pimentel-Mena, 27, of Riverhead for driving with a suspended license following a traffic stop on Flanders Road last Thursday around 11:47 p.m.

Police said she was driving a 2007 Mazda and was pulled over after coming to an abrupt stop in the lane of travel without signaling.
