Owner of Most Expensive Home in Fairfield Arrested

Bradley Jack Charged With Trying to Illegally Obtain Oxycontin and Ritalin

An owner of the most expensive house in Fairfield was arrested Friday on charges he tried to illegally obtain Oxycontin and Ritalin from a CVS pharmacy at the corner of Black Rock Turnpike and Jennings Road in Fairfield.

Bradley H. Jack, of North Avenue in Westport, was charged with second-degree forgery and forgery of a prescription drug. He was released on a promise to appear in Bridgeport Superior Court July 11, police said.

Police said Jack, who owns a 20-acre waterfront estate on Sasco Hill Road in Fairfield with his ex-wife, Karin Jack, came to the Fairfield Police Department to be questioned and was arrested about 4:27 p.m. Friday, police said.

Police said Jack presented a pharmacist at CVS with a prescription for 12 Oxycontin pills and nine Ritalin pills. The pharmacist determined the prescription was photocopied and also determined the prescription was fraudulent by contacting the doctor listed as authorizing the prescription, police said. The pharmacist told officers that the signature of the doctor on the prescription was not that of the doctor identified on the prescription, police said.

The pharmacist, after accepting the prescription, told Jack to come back in an hour to pick up the prescription police said. Jack returned, and the pharmacist told him to wait, police said. But Jack left before police officers arrived, and CVS employees gave police a description of the man and the license plate number on the Range Rover that Jack drove off in, police said.

A check revealed that the license plate came back to a residence on North Avenue in Westport, which is where Jack is currently staying, police said. An internal records check on the license plate came back to the house on Sasco Hill Road, police said.

Jack, when he came to the Police Department to be questioned, was wearing clothing that matched the description given by the pharmacist and Jack also matched the physical description given by the pharmacist, police said. Jack told officers he knew what he did was wrong, according to the police report.

Land records identify the Sasco Hill Road house as being owned by both Bradley and Karin Jack. Police said Karin Jack told officers her ex-husband is living in Westport.

The Jacks' house on Sasco Hill Road was assessed in the recent townwide revaluation at $24.2 million, an increase of $1 million over the prior assessment of $23.2 million. The new assessment gives the Jacks' house a market value of $34.6 million.

Karin Jack is appealing the new assessment in Bridgeport Superior Court.

Oxycotin is a terrible drug, and it can be a danger to everyone.

He is made to look like a drug addict, but in fact this guy has given lots of his own time and money to help other people, he's a genuine philanthropist and should be shown some respect. Again, the Patch gets it wrong, like it did with the owner of Lucy's Kitchen. Why is it so difficult to find out some of the positives of these people, not just the negatives? You could google this guy's name and find out the kind of person he was before the addiction took hold. Plus, he has kids, for God's sake!

i think this is different than the Lucy's Kitchen debacle, where Patch highlighted the deceased as something that he wasnt. This fellow broke the law. He is not being crucified. He broke the law and as someone with a high profile and some obvious intelligence, he should have considered the ramifications of his actions before doing so. Hopefully he can turn himself around and use the same motivation that he applied toward philanthropy towards his own therapy and outreach to others with the same kind of addiction. Sad? yes. Poor reporting by Patch? I don't think so. Not this time.

I agree with R Ludlowe. The black and brown people who might be arrested for shoplifting at Marshall's regularly have their pictures and addresses published, often accompanied by a description of the vehicles in which they flee.
R. Ludlowe July 01, 2011 at 11:33 AM
He broke the law, and Patch reports on crime. its that simple.

The poor go to jail. The wealthy go into rehab. Welcome to the America of the disappearing middle class Bear in mind, Herman, whoever you are, that there are a lot of us paying taxes for good schools and solid town services and amenities--without which the Jack mansion wouldn't be worth nearly as much.

Hang in there Brad. You're a great person; no matter what. Walter R. Long Island

Can't keep a good man down; Brad. And you're a good man. Walt

Why are we reading this one sided report on this individual then - why is it appropriate to mention this man's wealth and marital status (both of which have NOTHING to do with the crime committed)? It just sensationalizes the story. Patch, you seem like just another nosy neighbor.
