Back page: Man steals car to get to court
RIVERDALE, N.J. — A New Jersey man has been accused of stealing a friend’s car to avoid missing a court hearing on drug charges. Twenty-one-year-old Jorge Ramirez-Sierra, of Riverdale, has been charged with unlawful taking of a means of conveyance and driving while suspended, among other counts. Police tell NJ.com the new charges came after a man reported his car missing Friday morning. Police say the man told officers Ramirez-Sierra had said the night before that he didn’t know how he would get to Paterson for the court hearing. While officers were talking with the owner, Ramirez-Sierra called to say he was returning with the vehicle. He was taken into custody after arriving. NorthJersey.com reports that Ramirez-Sierra had been arrested on drug charges in March. Ramirez-Sierra’s telephone number couldn’t be located Monday.
