Theft charges have been filed against a former New Jersey police officer who allegedly stole funds while serving as treasurer of a police union.

Authorities say 34-year-old Jeffrey Lempicki turned himself in this week at the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office.

The former Brick Township officer stands accused of stealing more than $500 from his PBA local. The charges stem from a two-month investigation conducted by Brick police and the prosecutor's office, but further details on the matter were not disclosed.

Lempicki had been with the Brick force for nearly 12 years before he resigned in March. He did not immediately return a telephone message on Saturday and it was not known if he had retained a lawyer.
