  • Police investigate WR man with bomb gear, weapons

    Police found bomb-making materials, a handmade silencer for a semi-automatic rifle and other weapons alongside a White Rock man who was nearly unconscious on his kitchen floor, prompting them to call in the bomb squad last month.
    Jeremy Pollard, 37, pled no contest to minor drug charges and paid a small fine following the June 22 incident.
    However, Pollard is actively being investigated by the Los Alamos Police Department and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms for possible other charges as the investigation continues and authorities do not know his whereabouts, said LAPD spokesman Commander Preston Ballew.
    A neighbor told police that Pollard had recently been fired from his job at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. The neighbor also told police Pollard was “ex-military” and had “various types of radiological and military training,” according to the search warrant.  
    Police responded to a call June 22 from the same neighbor, who reported not seeing Pollard for a few days. When police gained entry to his house at 75 Hacienda Drive, they discovered Pollard on the floor of his kitchen in a semiconscious state “barely breathing,” according to police.
