ANOTHER CVP SCOOP: A 60-year-old Mahwah native released from federal prison two months ago after serving more than five years for bank fraud and possession of child pornography was arrested on stalking charges in Fort Lee on Saturday.

Salvatore Stabile was being held on $100,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail, records show.

Stabile was arrested by federal agents in 2007 after a woman who believed that she was his wife — not knowing that he was still married to another woman — gave them consent to search their Mahwah home.

The Secret Service agents were investigating counterfeit checks that Stabile later admitted passing after defaulting on the house’s mortgage, records show.

The agents then obtained a warrant and reported finding images of child pornography on computers that they seized from the home that day.

Stabile unsuccessfully fought the search and seizure, pleaded guilty to the bank fraud charge and was convicted in U.S. District Court of child pornography possession, records show.

He was sentenced in August 2009 to 78-month concurrent sentences for both.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons said Stabile was released this past Sept. 17.
