On December 10, 2021, at approximately 7:15 p.m., soldiers working on extra duty at the Delaware Park Casino located at 777 Delaware Park Blvd., Newark, intervened in the parking lot for illegally parked vehicles. One of the vehicles, a red Chevy Trailblazer, was left running and four young children (ages 4, 7, 9 and 12) were left inside. The investigation determined that the suspect, William Brisco placed a bet in the casino, then returned to his vehicle where soldiers were standing next to it. During the interaction with Brisco, one of the soldiers observed a large bag of suspected cocaine protruding from the sleeve of the suspect’s jacket. The soldier immediately recovered the drugs and the suspect fled on foot. The soldiers pursued him and located the suspect hiding behind trees on the property. Brisco was successfully deported and detained without further incident. After taking Brisco into custody, the soldiers discovered a digital scale and $ 390 of suspected drug products in his possession.

  • Possession of a quantity of a controlled substance level 3 (crime)
  • Endangering the well-being of a child – 4 counts
  • Resist arrest
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
