MORRIS COUNTY — Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal announced the arrest of Peter C. LaGreca (DOB: 04/01/1988, single; and employed as an attorney) of 21 Ivy Court, East Hanover, on charges of Computer Theft, Theft, and Receiving Stolen Property. This arrest is the result of an investigation conducted by members of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Cyber Crimes Unit under the direction of Chief Robert Anzilotti.
In December 2015, a court-authorized search, seizure and forensic examination of LaGreca’s electronic devices revealed files and data belonging to the Office of the Morris County Prosecutor. Further investigation, in coordination with the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office and the New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice, revealed that LaGreca was previously employed as a legal intern at the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office from May 2012 to May 2013. At that time, LaGreca unlawfully copied files and data from computer systems at the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office.
As a result of the investigation, Peter C. LaGreca was arrested by way of complaint summons on Thursday, April 6, and charged with one count of Computer Theft, N.J.S.A. 2C:24-25e, a third degree crime; one count of Theft, N.J.S.A. 2C:20-3, a third degree crime; and one count of Receiving Stolen Property, N.J.S.A. 2C:20-7, a third degree crime. LAGRECA was released on his own recognizance pending his first appearance in the Bergen County Judicial Processing Court on Wednesday, April 19 at 8:30 a.m.
