01/27/20: At approximately 1:44 PM Sheriff’s Deputies arrested Vincent Chiarello, 52, of Lake Grove, NY, for aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle in the third degree. Mr. Chiarello was attempting to enter the Suffolk County Correctional Facility Security Booth checkpoint in Riverhead for the purposes of picking up inmate property while having a fictitiously displayed inspection certificate fastened to the vehicle’s windshield. A DMV computer check revealed that the vehicle’s last inspection was in 2017. A DMV computer check also revealed the vehicle’s registration was suspended two times total, the last due to an insurance lapse. Further inspection revealed that Mr. Chiarello’s NYS driver’s license was suspended 12 times with the last suspension for failure to pay a driver responsibility assessment. He was charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle in the 3rd degree, driving an uninspected motor vehicle, displaying a forged inspection certificate, operating a vehicle with a suspended registration, and failure to surrender license plates.
