Horseneck Road Burglary Suspect Arrested by Fairfield Police

Paterson man arrested for burglary and theft in Fairfield Credits: Fairfield Police Department

FAIRFIELD, NJ — A 51-year-old Paterson man was arrested on Wednesday by the Fairfield Police Department for his involvement in the burglary and theft that occurred on July 12 at a Horesneck Road residence.

At approximately 5:03 p.m. on July 12, a Horseneck Road resident returned home to find a suspicious vehicle with the engine idling parked in her driveway. She then entered her home and allegedly observed a strange individual, later identified as Henry Adamson, inside of it.

Upon seeing the resident, the resident reported that Adamson fled the home carrying a black case and then got into the vehicle and began to drive away, according to police. Police said the resident then followed the individual and was able to capture a series of photographs on a cell phone of the vehicle as it was leaving, capturing its license plate.

According to police, further investigation at the scene indicated that the suspect forced open the front door of the residence and escaped with jewelry from the home. It was also revealed that the suspect’s vehicle was registered to an address in Paterson.

Later that night, a team of Fairfield officers led by Detective Lieutenant Charles Zampino and Detective Ian Rasmussen and officers from the Paterson Police Department, responded to the registered owner’s address and found the vehicle. Further investigation revealed that Adamson was in possession of the vehicle at the time the crime was committed, according to police. Investigators had warrants issued for Adamson’s arrest.

On Wednesday, Fairfield detectives—along with officers from the United States Marshal’s Office—found Adamson hiding in an apartment located on Bridge Street in Paterson.

He was arrested and brought back to Fairfield police headquarters for processing. He was eventually transported to the Essex County Correctional Facility in Newark.

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

A Special Thank You For Helping Us Weather The Storm

June 18, 2018

About a month ago, on May 15, 2018, something happened to me and my family that changed our lives. An act of God, apparently a “microburst,” tore through our front yard, and uprooted an approximately 19,000 pound tree. The tree fell into my 8 month old’s bedroom destroying the entire structure of our home.

My husband, with what I call divine intervention, told us to go ...
