Fair Lawn police investigating a report of a man looking into car windows found a Hackensack man carrying heroin, crack and an airsoft gun, authorities said.

Officers Anthony Burgos and Peter Federico found 43-year-old David Merritt in the parking lot of the Chase Bank on River Road just after 3 p.m. Thursday, Sgt. Brian Metzler said.

They found the drugs and weapon inside a backpack he was carrying, Metzler said.
