A Nassau County man was arrested Sunday evening on unlicensed driving and marijuana possession charges after he was pulled over by troopers in Columbia County, New York State Police said.

Shaun Dus, 30, was arrested Dec. 1 and faces two misdemeanor charges of second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and unlawful possession of marijuana.

Authorities said Dus was pulled over shortly after 6 p.m. on Sunday after a trooper saw his vehicle had an invalid New York State inspection sticker, a news release said. During the traffic stop, he was allegedly found to be in possession of marijuana. Police did not specify the amount of marijuana recovered when announcing the charges in a Monday news release.

Dus was issued an appearance ticket and a uniform traffic ticket. He appeared at the Town of New Lebanon Justice Court and was released without bail. The date of his next court appearance was not immediately available.
