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.

Valyrian Steel: Where is it All? Should We Still Care?

There is a glaring hole in recent Game of Thrones seasons that needs to be addressed: the ability of Valyrian steel to destroy White Walkers has not been acknowledged since before Jon Snow’s death.

In fact, it hasn’t been mentioned since the Season Five finale when Jon Snow reveals this discovery to Sam Tarly. Jon has cared about little more than the war between the living and ...
