A man who refused Buffalo Police orders to leave a West Side McDonald’s restaurant, saying he was “going to stay until he was done selling drugs,” was arrested on numerous charges, Buffalo Police reported Friday.

Eric Gonzalez-Cerino, no age or address listed, was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, trespassing, harassment and having a prescription outside of its original container after police were called to the McDonald’s restaurant at 241 W. Ferry St. to investigate a report he was harassing employees and refused to leave.

Gonzalez-Cerino then refused police requests to leave and, according to reports by police, told them he was staying to finish selling his drugs. Besides the pills, Gonzalez-Cerino also allegedly had 10 bags of heroin.
