New Rochelle Man Arrested for Prescription Steroids

Nicholas Gary, a New Rochelle man was arrested for possession of prescription drugs, and prescription steroids. He was pulled over on November 25 when Harrison Police found he was driving a vehicle that belonged to a driver with a suspended license. Police reports say that after searching the car, there were several prescription drugs found.

Gary was placed under arrest for driving on a suspended license, a misdemeanor, and also for criminal possession of a controlled substance in the 7th degree. In the car police seized a vial of testosterone, a spray bottle of a substance labeled "testosterone homeopathic organotherapy", a plastic bag containing sample boxes of zyprexa and unopened syringes. Gary told Harrison Police a doctor at St. Vincent's Hospital gave him free samples of drugs to treat his bipolar disorder, as he did not have medical insurance. It is unclear weather this was looked into by Harrison Police.

Police withheld the Zyprexa, and the syringes and released Gary on $200.00 bail. Ordered to return to court on November 29.
