Former Harvey Cedars Police Sergeant Pleads Guilty to ATV Theft

May 03, 2019

Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer announced on Thursday former Harvey Cedars police Sgt. Sean Marti pleaded guilty to a charge of theft of movable property, a third-degree crime.

Bilhimer said an investigation by the Prosecutor’s Office Professional Standards Unit revealed that in the summer of 2017, Marti became aware that a resident wanted to donate a Polaris all-terrain vehicle (ATV) to the Harvey Cedars Police Department or Beach Patrol.

He said Marti accepted the ATV, stored it at his home in Stafford Township and continued to use the ATV as his own until December 2018 when it was recovered by the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office. The 49-year-old Marti has been terminated by the Harvey Cedars Police Department.

As a condition of the plea agreement, Superior Court Judge Wendel E. Daniels executed a forfeiture of public office order. This order permanently forfeits Marti’s employment with the Harvey Cedars Police Department and bars him from any future public employment in New Jersey.

Marti is scheduled to be sentenced June 20.  —E.E.
