Deputies: Livonia man steals from 7-Eleven, falls asleep at gas pump
Livonia, N.Y. - Livingston County Sheriff's Deputies have arrested a Livonia man after he allegedly stole items from a 7-Eleven store before falling asleep in his car at the gas pump.
Jason A. Klinkbeil, 27, faces a raft of charges including Aggravated Unlicensed Operator in the First Degree, Driving While Ability Impaired by Drug(s), two counts of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Seventh Degree, Criminal Possession of a Hypodermic Instrument and Petit Larceny.
Deputies responded to the convenience store on Big Tree Street on Tuesday, May 24 around 5:30pm following the report of a man in an impaired condition.
Upon arrival, deputies found Klinkbeil passed out in the driver seat of his vehicle at one of the gas pumps.
Deputies woke him up, and peppered him with questions about stolen items at the store.
Klinkbeil then attempted to hide a hypodermic needle down the front of his pants, according to deputies.
Deputies found heroin and an additional hypdermic needle on KlinkBeil. He was also found to be in possession of a controlled substance in pill form (acetaminophen propoxyphene 650mg), according to deputies.
After Klinkbeil performed field sobriety tests, deputies charged him with driving while ability impaired by drug(s).
The suspect was also believed to be under the influence of a Narcotic Analgesic and Cannabis and was unable to operate a vehicle safely.
His arrest was bumped up to felony status after it was discovered that Klinkbeil was currently suspended for driving while ability impaired by alcohol.
Klinkbeil is expected to be arraigned sometime Wednesday.
