An East Meadow woman whose 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee was stopped on Sept. 7 near CVS on Pantigo Road in East Hampton Village for lacking tail lamps and brake lights was later charged with two misdemeanors for driving without a license. In fact, village police said, after running the 30-year-old driver’s name, Faith Avila, through a state computer database, they found that her license had been suspended eight times. Police impounded the Jeep; the woman was released on her own recognizance and is to appear in Town Justice Court on Wednesday.
In other recent arrests, Milton Castellon-Garcia of Hampton Bays, 23, was charged on the evening of Sept. 6 with leaving the scene of an accident with injury involved, a misdemeanor. Village police said he had hit a car and its driver, fled, and almost immediately had another accident, when loose car parts caused damage to a second car, which was eastbound on Buell Lane. Mr. Castellon-Garcia then parked at a Toilsome Lane address, where officers found and charged him. He too is expected in Justice Court on Wednesday.
Erik Enersen of Houston, 28, was charged last week with criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor, after an officer spotted him at Gurney’s Star Island Resort and Marina in Montauk with three vials containing a white powder in his possession. The white powder was later determined to be cocaine, police said.
