Stamford man charged for loose pills
Published 12:31 pm, Sunday, July 29, 2012
Donald Jones, 35, of 6 Duffy St., Stamford, was charged with failure to keep narcotics in their original container after he turned himself in on a warrant for his arrest Thursday, July 19.
Jones' arrest stems from an incident that took place at Grieb's Pharmacy, 1021 Post Road, on May 31 at approximately 2:30 p.m. Police were originally contacted when Jones was seen wearing a bulletproof vest, which officers determined was unfounded.
Police said they found 19 pills, later identified as the narcotic OxyContin, in Jones' front pants pocket. The pills were not in their original container.

Jones was not immediately arrested, as the composition of the pills was not confirmed until later, according to the report. The arrest warrant was applied for once the identification of the pills was made.
Jones was released on a written promise to appear in court, where he is scheduled to appear July 30.
