Sheriff Saudino Announces Arrest of Daniel Mactaggart

Bergen County Sheriff Michael Saudino today announced the arrest of Daniel Mactaggart on Saturday, March 8th, 2014.

At approximately 11:40 a.m., Officer Krzysztof Wojtylo was serving civil process papers in the city of Garfield when he observed Daniel Mactaggart of Lodi driving south on Shaw Street towards Lanza Avenue where he came to a full stop at the traffic light. After failing to give the right of way to oncoming traffic, Mactaggart turned left on Lanza Ave cutting off several vehicles. Officer Wojtylo then observed Mactaggart turning left (west) onto Madeline Avenue, a one way street going east.


As Officer Mactaggart approached the vehicle and began to advise Mactaggart of his violations, he noticed a change of behavior in Mactaggart which included nervousness and rapid and shallow breathing. This became more apparent when asked if he had any drugs in his vehicle. Upon asking for consent to search the vehicle, Mr. Mactaggart consented both verbally and in writing.

Further investigation revealed two bricks wrapped in newspaper, and two stacks of ten envelopes wrapped by a rubber band, found in the trunk of the vehicle. The Bergen County Sheriff’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation later identified and counted a total of 120 envelopes of heroin. $844 in U.S. currency was also seized.

Daniel Mactaggart was placed under arrest and charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance, and distribution of a controlled dangerous substance. He is being held at the Bergen County Jail at $20,000 bail.

“I commend the diligence and attentiveness that Officer Wojtylo displayed,” said Sheriff Saudino. “These incidents highlight the dangers that officers encounter every day. I am proud of Officer Wojtylo’s commitment to service resulting in the removal of these dangerous drugs from the streets of Bergen County.”

The Bergen County Sheriff’s Office maintains that all individuals are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
