FREEHOLD, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey authorities are looking for a police officer after he skipped out on his trial on charges that he helped gang members in police investigations.
The Monmouth County Sheriff's Office says it is searching for 49-year-old Keith German after the Asbury Park patrolman failed to show up in court Tuesday. The trial went on without him. German's lawyer isn't commenting.
A neighbor tells the Asbury Park Press he saw two people loading a trailer in German's driveway last week.
German is accused of tipping off gang members in police investigations in exchange for stalking a woman who turned down his advances.
He was free on $50,000 bond, charged with numerous crimes, including official misconduct, racketeering conspiracy, stalking and computer theft.
