On Tuesday, July 11, Lindenhurst resident David Marmol, 41, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for possession of multiple illegal items, as well as a metal knuckle knife, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney.

On February 20, 2021, Marmol was pulled over at what was supposed to be a routine traffic stop near South Fifth Street and the Montauk Freeway in Lindenhurst.

However, when officers walked up to the 2020 Ford Expedition that Marmol had leased, they smelled marijuana, searched the car, and found an illegal metal knuckle knife on the center console.

Marmol was arrested and further searches revealed he was carrying 20 bags of cocaine (weighing over half an ounce) and four bags containing heroin and fentanyl.

According to District Attorney Ray A. Tierney, Marmore had previous convictions for drug trafficking in 2010, 2001 and 2000, but that “didn’t stop him Arrested for drugs.”

In December 2022, Marmore was found guilty of two felony charges and one misdemeanor charge of criminal possession of a controlled substance at the conclusion of a week-long trial.

He was also convicted of unlawful possession of a weapon, which is also a misdemeanor.
