A Viagra-toting Quincy man was arrested Monday for drug possession and trying to steal nearly $350 in clothes from the local Sports Authority, according to police.
Patrick Glynn, 35, of 270 Quarry St., was arrested on the charges of shoplifting more than $100 worth of merchandise, plus two counts of drug possession about 6:40 p.m. Monday, according to police.
According to Lt. Paul Shastany, police were called to the Shoppers World store after security guards there saw Glynn pick several items from the men's apparel department and take them into a dressing room.
When Glynn left the dressing room, he was not carrying those items and store security found several clothings tags left inside the dressing room.
Security stopped Glynn and they found several pieces of clothing underneath his shirt, including four Tom Brady Patriots jerseys, an Under Armour hat and a pair of Under Armour shorts - all with a reported total value of just under $350, said Shastany. A pair of pliers were also found, he said.
When police arrived and searched Glynn, they found Suboxone, methadone and Viagra wrapped in plastic and inside his pocket, said Shastany. Glynn claimed the
Suboxone and methadone were meant to treat his heroin addiction, but Glynn did not have a prescription for either drug, said Shastany. Suboxone and methadone are medications to treat opiate addiction, according to the federal Food and Drug Administration.
Police charged Glynn with two counts of drug possession. Shastany said Glynn was not charged with possession of Viagra, which is a prescription drug.
