HACKENSACK – A "sworn member" of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office is under investigation by the state Attorney General's Office.

"The Office of the Attorney General’s Office of Public Integrity & Accountability, in conjunction with the Division of Criminal Justice, is engaged in an ongoing criminal investigation related to the conduct of a sworn member of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office (BCPO)," a prosecutor's spokesperson told New Jersey 101.5. "The BCPO’s Confidential Investigations Unit is assisting with that investigation. No further information is available at this time."

Stolen evidence is the focus, report says

Sources close to the case told NBC New York that the investigation is related to the theft of drugs from an evidence room.

Another source told the New York Post that a "significant amount of narcotics" that may have included cocaine was stolen.

The prosecutor's office would only confirm they are cooperating with the investigation.
