SUFFOLK COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE ARRESTS FUGITIVE FROM JUSTICE FROM PENNSYLVANIA

*** Fugitive Wanted for Unlawful Imprisonment, Assault, and Harassment ***


Jason Rodriguez

(Farmingville, NY) On July 2, 2023, at approximately 4:23 AM, Suffolk County Deputy Sheriffs arrested Jason A. Rodriguez, 21, of Farmingville, NY, as a Fugitive from Justice from the State of Pennsylvania. After Rodriguez was stopped on Nichols Rd. in Farmingville for speeding, a computer check revealed that Rodriguez had an active warrant out of Wilkes-Barre, PA, for Unlawful Imprisonment, Simple Assault, and Harassment.


Rodriguez allegedly had forced his way into his girlfriend’s house, struck her with a belt, and held her captive for 20 hours. He was arraigned July 2, 2023, at Suffolk County First District Court in Islip on the above charges pending extradition to Pennsylvania.


Suffolk County Sheriff Dr. Errol D. Toulon, Jr. commends his deputies for their hard work and dedication to keeping Suffolk County safe. “Car stops are dangerous because Deputies never know who they will discover behind the wheel. In this case, the driver was wanted for crimes committed out-of-state and will now be sent back to Pennsylvania to face justice for his actions. I thank these Deputy Sheriffs for their diligence in protecting Suffolk County residents.”
