Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey, Special Agent in Charge Charles Giblin of the New Jersey Department of Treasury – Division of Taxation - Office of Criminal Investigation, and Chief Jeffrey Nelson of the Dunellen Police Department announced that a Special Agent Trainee with the Division of Taxation was arrested today for stealing from an establishment in Dunellen.

According to authorities, Timothy Bailey, 30, of Hamilton, was arrested and charged with one count of theft by unlawful taking in the fourth degree.

Officials charged Bailey during a joint investigation by the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office, the New Jersey Department of Treasury - Division of Taxation - Office of Criminal Investigation and the Dunellen Police Department.

The charges were filed after it was determined that on August 16th, Bailey, a Special Agent Trainee, still in his probationary period, stole money in excess of $200 while conducting an investigation for the Division of Taxation at an establishment in Dunellen.

Officials say Bailey was sworn in as a Special Agent Trainee in December 2017 and was arrested at his place of employment in Freehold. He has been suspended with pay, pending an internal hearing.

The investigation is active and is continuing.
