A Cutchogue man who was pulled over Saturday morning for a license plate violation in Bridgehampton was arrested after police found drugs and a needle filled with heroin in his car, Southampton Town police said.

Brian Mosblech, 29, was stopped on Montauk Highway near the Sag Harbor Turnpike about 11:45 a.m., police said. While interviewing Mr. Mosblech an officer noticed empty glassine paper envelopes “in plain view” in the pickup truck’s cup holder, according to a police report. Police searched the truck and found eight envelopes containing heroin inside the front floor cup holder, as well as a needle loaded with heroin, according to the report.

Mr. Mosblech was arrested at the scene and charged with criminal drug possession, a misdemeanor and a traffic violation.

• Greenport man previously convicted of DWI was arrested again for drunken driving last week in Southampton Town, state police said.

Police stopped Ronald Smith, 47, as he was driving south at 87 miles per hour on County Road 51 last Thursday, according to a police statement. A state trooper found Mr. Smith was intoxicated and arrested him at the scene, police said.

He was charged with felony DWI and held overnight at the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department, according to the statement.

• A Southold woman reported that someone took headsets, toolboxes and a life raft from a aircraft hangar her deceased husband had rented in Westhampton, according to a police report.

The victim told police she hadn’t been in the hangar for at least 18 months but went there last Wednesday to find two stainless steel toolboxes, a work table, four aircraft headsets, a life raft and sailboat instructions were missing.

Police did not say how much the missing items were worth.

Those who are named in police reports have not been convicted of any crime or violation. The charges against them may later be reduced or withdrawn, or they may be found innocent.
