Driving without interlock device leads to arrests
Last week, State Police arrested two men charged with violating the probation terms in a driving while intoxicated conviction.
Nicholas A. Santaniello, 26, of West Seneca, is accused of operating a vehicle without an interlock device — he is under court order to do so — as well as violating his restricted-use license.
Santaniello reportedly had an appointment on April 2 to have his vehicle’s interlock device calibrated. Officials said he arrived at the business driving a different vehicle without the device and that a friend drove his vehicle instead.
Santaniello is further alleged to have been drinking prior to the appointment, though he was not intoxicated, State Police said.
Jason Connolly, 35, of Cheektowaga, is charged with facilitating operation to a person court-ordered to use an interlock device, and driving without a license.
Both are scheduled to appear in Town of Clarence Court on Tuesday, April 17.
