Samantha Dittmeier, 22, of Mattituck was arrested just before 1:30 p.m. on Aug. 1, after police responded to a call of a suspicious person in a car parked on Moore’s Lane in Greenport. Police said Ms. Dittmeier gave a false name when approached and was in possession of a small amount of marijuana. Police said they later determined that Ms. Dittmeier was driving the vehicle without the owner’s consent. She was charged with criminal impersonation, unlawful possession of marijuana and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and held overnight for a morning arraignment.
