WALLINGTON, N.J. -- A career criminal from Carlstadt recently charged with using his brother's identification following a traffic stop was again arrested by Wallington police -- this time as he rode a bicycle outside headquarters.

Craig Marotta was wanted on an outstanding warrant out of Garfield when Officer Kasper Zielinski spotted him around 2:30 a.m. July 23, Lt. Shawn Kudlacik said Tuesday.

Zielinski had arrested Marotta in May after he tried to pay a batch of traffic tickets using his brother's name because his license was suspended when he was stopped driving a Ford van with a broken taillight days earlier, Kudlacik said at the time.

This time, after taking Marotta into custody on the $1,967 Garfield warrant, Zielinski found him carrying a crack pipe and illegal prescription drugs, the lieutenant said.

The officer charged Marotta with various drug-related offenses.

A judge ordered him held on $2,500 bail.
