Authorities in Hudson County announced that a Guttenberg Police Officer has forfeited his position in law enforcement following an allegation he stole money from an acquaintance while off-duty.
According to officials, Anthony Cosma, 32, was charged with one count of Theft by Deception, a crime of the third degree, on Tuesday, February 28.
Officials say Cosma waived his right to an indictment on Thursday, March 9.
He will be permitted to enter into the Pretrial Intervention Program and has forfeited his right to current and future public employment.
An investigation by the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office Internal Affairs Unit determined Cosma received over $500 from an acquaintance to be used for a business investment and instead used the money for different purposes.
