Police: Man Didn't Keep Narcotics in Original Container

A 35-year-old man was charged with carrying around pills not in their original container.

On May 31, were called to Grieb's Pharmacy at 1021 Post Rd. on a report that a man there seemed to be wearing a bulletproof vest. Although that wasn't the case, police said they found 19 pills in the man's front pocket.

The pills were later identified as OxyContin-type narcotics, and they weren't in their original containers, a violation of the law, police said. When the pills were identified, police applied for and were issued an arrest warrant for Donald Jones, 35, of 6 Duffy St., Stamford.

Jones turned himself in to police and was released on a written promise to appear in state Superior Court in Stamford.

If there really is a law in CT that forbids one to carry prescription narcotic medicines in other than their original containers, it needs to be repealed. How incredibly stupid! I have a bottle of 50 pills for pain for a recent surgery; I take a 2-day trip to Chicago; I can't put 3 of those pills in another container for the trip? This type of law, IF it exists, is reminiscent of those laws governing what one can do in one's own bedroom, ie, it uses SOMEONE's idea of morality to impose restrictions on others who do not agree.
