Essex County Sheriff’s Officer Accused of Stealing from Labor Union

Newark New Jersey Theft SuspectA Byram NJ man who used to be in charge of a police officers’ labor union in Essex County NJ was recently arrested and charged with stealing cash from the organization.

The suspect is a 45-year-old resident of Byram Township, New Jersey. He is reportedly a member of the Essex County Sheriff’s Office and the head of Essex County Sheriff’s Officers PBA Local 183 with the New Jersey State Policemen’s Benevolent Association (NJSPBA).

The NJSPBA is a labor union that represents police officers in New Jersey.

According to law enforcement, the suspect used a credit card issued to the local PBA and charged more than $14K for repairs to his personal car.

Once the labor organization became aware of the alleged theft, officials notified the police. Detectives with the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office then conducted an investigation and eventually determined that there was enough evidence to arrest the suspect.

The suspect has been charged with theft by deception. Given the high amount of the alleged theft, the crime has been classified as a felony-level offense. This means that a conviction could result in a significant prison sentence for the suspect.

Authorities are actively investigating the suspect. Any members of the public with information about the suspect or the alleged theft are asked to contact investigators with the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office Professional Standards and Corruption Bureau at 862-520-3700.
