Local man arrested on heroin-related charge

A Greenwich man was arrested Friday morning on a pair of drug-related warrants.

Scott Polachek, 33, of 1055 U.S. 224, was picked up by Richland County deputies who then transferred him to Plymouth police.

Huron County Deputy Shannon Lyons later transported Polachek to the jail at about 7:12 a.m.

Polachek's active warrants included possession of heroin and having weapons under disability.

In July, in what law-enforcement officers called one of the biggest drug busts in recent history, Polachek and his 35-year-old brother, Gary, were arrested at their South Street residence in Greenwich.

"The Polacheks ... were found to be in possession of 125 balloons of heroin, numerous Xanax pills, hundreds of syringes, about 20 suspected crack pipes, suspected crack cocaine, six firearms, including a loaded AK-47 and numerous rounds of ammunition," Huron County Sheriff's Detective Sgt. Josh Querin said following the arrests.

"The heroin balloons might actually be doubles, meaning it would be more than 125 balloons," Querin said. "The street value is around $4,000."

Querin said $179 in cash was also seized.

"This is one of the largest heroin busts in Huron County during this administration," Querin added. "This was potentially a dangerous situation with all the firearms inside, including the AK-47."

Court records indicate Scott Polachek has yet to be indicted by a Huron County grand jury for his alleged role in the July drug bust.
