Anthony Cosma, of the Guttenberg Police Department, is facing one count of theft by deception, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez said.
Cosma was charged on Tuesday, Feb. 28 and waived his right to an indictment on Thursday, March 9. He will be permitted to enter into the Pretrial Intervention Program and has given up his right to current and future public employment.
