New Smyrna man arrested for drugs

Islamorada – A New Smyrna man was arrested on drug charges after he was found to have been driving with a suspended license.

A resident of Fontaine Drive called the Sheriff’s Office to report a car was parked blocking his driveway at 8:15 a.m. Monday. When deputies arrived, they found 43 year old Steven Polak standing near his blue Volvo. They asked Polak what he was doing there and Polak said he was waiting for a friend named “Mike”. Polak gave Deputy Ray Jodlowski the spelling of his name as “Pollack”. A check of that name came back as having a license suspension in 2007.

A search of his vehicle turned up an unlabeled prescription bottle with 28 Xanax pills, 3 Klonopin pills and 3 Restoril pills inside. Cocaine was found hidden inside a cigarette pack.

Polak was arrested and taken to jail. Once at the jail, Polak spelled his name  with one “l”  for Corrections Officers who were booking him. Deputy Jodlowski overheard him and confronted him about it. The deputy asked him why he gave him a false name and Polak said “I did not think you would check”.

Polak was charged with driving with a suspended license, possession of cocaine, three counts possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and resisting arrest.
