Thomas P. Kostingo, age 53, of Gilberton, Pa., was arrested in Delaware Township, N.J., on Aug. 2 after a woman reported she was being followed by another vehicle, according to the Hunter County Prosecutor.

Delaware Township Police responded to a residential driveway at 9:50 p.m., they say, and found Thomas P. Kostingo in his vehicle. Kostingo was taken into custody due to an outstanding warrant issued by Lancaster, Pa.

Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office Chief of Detectives John J. Kuczynski stated, “It remains unclear why this individual, who by all accounts is a stranger, followed the woman into Delaware Township.”

At the time of his arrest, Kostingo was operating a red 1998 Dodge pickup truck with Pa. license plates. A subsequent search of the vehicle yielded a hypodermic syringe and drug paraphernalia, say police.

The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information is asked by officials to contact the Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office Major Crimes Units at (908) 788-1129, or the Delaware Township Police Department at (609) 397-8189.
