Field Appearance Ticket: Unlawful Possession of Marijuana
02/05/20: At approximately 2:52 PM, Sheriff’s Deputies issued Jonathan Cingo, 24, of Medford, NY, a field appearance ticket for unlawful possession of marijuana. Mr. Cingo was operating a vehicle traveling westbound on the Long Island Expressway while traveling too closely to the Deputy’s vehicle. He then passed the Deputy’s vehicle without signaling and while speeding at an estimated 83 MPH in a marked 55 MPH zone. Upon interviewing Mr. Cingo, there was a heavy odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. When questioned about the smell, Mr. Cingo voluntarily surrendered six plastic bags containing a green leafy substance from the vehicle’s center console identified by the defendant as marijuana. The positive identity and weight of the substance in question is pending analysis by the Suffolk County Crime Lab.
