PAULSBORO — Jerome Worthy, 31, of Paulsboro, was arrested Friday, Jan. 9 at a Paulsboro apartment complex on a warrant for failure to appear in court on narcotics charges and a charge of possession of a weapon while committing a drug crime.
A detective with the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office Fugitive Investigations Unit and Paulsboro police officers arrested Worthy without incident in a vehicle in the parking area of the Cedar Knoll Apartments, authorities said. Worthy was turned over to the Gloucester County Sheriff’s Department.
Worthy’s charges stem from an April 3 incident in West Deptford for which he and a co-defendant were arrested, said authorities.
Worthy was scheduled for a status conference on Dec. 8. A bench warrant was issued for him after he failed to show up, authorities said.
