A Farmingville man is in trouble after police say he sold gas directly out of a fuel delivery truck in a Lake Ronkonkoma parking lot Sunday night.
Robert Faulkner, 48, was issued summonses for handling flammable liquids without a permit and for improper dispensing of flammable liquids.
Faulkner was selling the fuel for $4.80 a gallon from a truck from the company he owns--Direct Marine Fuel Corporation--in the Lake Shore Plaza parking lot on Portion Road outside of the old Waldbaum's, police said.
Officers who responded to a call observed more than 100 vehicles gathered in the lot and along Portion Road waiting to fill up.
A fire marshal from the Brookhaven Town Department of Building and Fire Prevention responded and issued Faulkner the summonses.
The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance was also notified, police said.
