After being pulled over a second time, deputies arrest man

NORTH HARMONY, N.Y. (WIVB) – About an hour after ticketing a man the sheriff’s office says was driving on a suspended license, deputies again pulled him over, and this time placed him under arrest.

The Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office says they first stopped 56-year-old Mark Linamen for speeding on North Maple Street in the Town of North Harmony around 1 p.m. on Tuesday. Deputies say Linamen was driving on a license that had been suspended when he failed to answer a summons in Town of Busti Court.

Linamen was ticketed and released, and a relative drove the vehicle away from the scene.

About an hour later, deputies say they again spotted Linamen behind the wheel, this time on Stoneledge Road at the intersection of North Maple Street in the Town of North Harmony. Authorities say Linamen sped away from the area down Fairdink Road, where he then pulled into a driveway and alongside a barn, and then slouching down in the front seat, to avoid detection.

But deputies say the ruse didn’t work. Linamen was arrested for two counts of aggravated unlicensed operation and taken to the Chautauqua County Jail on $2,500 bail. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
