A Lawrence Township police officer was arrested Nov. 10 for allegedly possessing dozens of files of child sex abuse material (CSAM) on his mobile phone.
Shane Hickey, 29, of Lawrence Township, was charged by complaint-summons with a charge of third-degree possession of CSAM.
Following a tip to the New Jersey State Police’s Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Unit and a subsequent State Police investigation, Hickey is alleged to have emailed himself 45 files of CSAM using a cell phone, according to information from the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office.
The cell phone account was traced back to Hickey, officials said.
A court appearance is pending.
Hickey has been suspended from the Lawrence Township Police Department, according to the statement.
Third-degree charges carry a sentence of three to five years in state prison and a fine of up to $15,000.
