Suffolk police: Driver had license suspended 65 times

A North Lindenhurst man was charged Friday with driving a motor vehicle with a license that had been suspended 65 times, Suffolk County police said.

Oscar Ronquillo, 25, was driving a 2005 gray Honda, which previously had been reported stolen, in the area of Fulton Street, near Schenectady Avenue in West Babylon, at 10:35 a.m. when he was pulled over by officers from the First Precinct, police said.

A check of Ronquillo’s license revealed it had been suspended 65 times on 10 separate occasions, police said. Authorities said Ronquillo was driving the vehicle without its owner's permission.

Ronquillo was charged with first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, a felony, and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, a misdemeanor. He will be arraigned at a later date.
