YPD/Wanted Man Arrested
Yarmouth Police Pro-Active Anti-Crime Unit Officers arrested a Chatham man Monday afternoon after observing a white male, acting suspiciously, walking around the parking lot of Bass River Liquors.
When officers encountered 52 year old Jerry White, near the Stop and Shop on Long Pond Drive, they observed him throw a pill bottle to the ground.
Police were aware that White is a convicted felon with 122 prior charges in Massachusetts and a check of his status showed that there was a warrant for his arrest.
Inside the discarded pill bottle officers found a Suboxone package, a Suboxone pill, two Gabapentin capsules and one capsule of Benzodiazepine.
White was arrested and charged with a warrant out of Orleans District Court for felony breaking and entering and trespassing plus charges for the illegal pills.
He was arraigned in Barnstable District Court.
