Fairfield Man Charged with Possession of Heroin with Intent to Distribute

Fairfield (NJ) The Fairfield Police Department announces the arrest of William Pollack (33) of Fairfield, N.J. with a variety of charges relating to the possession with intent to distribute a controlled dangerous substance charge on September 22, 2017. On this date, at approximately 8:53 AM, Officer Frank Patierno was on patrol in the area of Long Acres Road as an initiative having greater presence in and around the residential areas with the recent start of school.

It is alleged that he observed a 2012 Chevrolet pickup truck, operated by Pollack, driving rapidly down Long Acres Road and barely stopping at the stop sign at the intersection of Knoll Road. The officer also observed the vehicle had front end damage that prevented certain lights from working and also having tinted windows. The vehicle was eventually stopped on Horseneck Road.

When the officer approached the vehicle, he immediately recognized Pollack from an alleged recent previous arrest in a neighboring jurisdiction. At this time, Officer Jeffrey Dean arrived as back up. Further investigation resulted in the seizure of 50 glassine folds containing suspected heroin, 3 Xanax tablets and $612.00 in cash.

He was ultimately charged with possession of heroin with intent to distribute, possession of heroin with intent to distribute within a 1000 feet of a school, and possession of both heroin and Xanax. In addition, he was charged with a variety of motor vehicle violations. He was released on his own recognizance.

(It should be noted that the charges against Pollack are merely allegations and that he is presumed innocent until he either pleads guilty or is found guilty in a court of law)
