LINDEN – A 54-year-old Newton man was arrested on multiple contempt of court warrants and charges of possession of drug paraphernalia after Linden police investigated a report of a suspicious person at the CVS Pharmacy on N. Wood Avenue on Tuesday afternoon.

Mark M. Gero was wanted on warrants out of Newton, Clifton and Wayne totaling $16,440, police found. The officers were called to the pharmacy when a store employee noticed a suspicious person walking behind the counter and pulling on drawer handles.

When approached by police, Gero allegedly told the officers “you got me, I have warrants and syringes in the bag.” Gero was found to have hypodermic needles and a silver spoon in his possession at the time of his arrest. Store employees did not report anything missing from the counter or drawers.

Gero’s bail was set at $2,000.
