Synopsis: On 02-24-2012 at approximately 0040 hours, deputies contacted the Suspect Nicholas Pollard at the intersection of Franklin Road and Robin Road in Fort Bragg. Deputies were aware that Pollard was presently out on bail for a pending theft matter(and was to obey all laws as part of the bail release) and contacted him to inquire his activity in the area.

During that contact, deputies conducted a cursory search for weapons and Pollard alerted deputies that he was armed with a knife. Deputies located a concealed fixed bladed knife on his person that was approximately 14-inches in length.

Pollard was arrested and a further search of his person revealed two pieces of solid brass, consistent with what is utilized to facilitate brass knuckles, and a single pill that was later identified as morphine, for which Pollard did not have a prescription for.

Pollard was transported to the Mendocino County Jail where he was booked on the listed charges with bail set at $40,000.00.
