Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella announced the arrest of HECTOR MORROBEL (DOB: 8/04/1976; married; self-employed) of 378 Kaplan Ave, Hackensack, NJ on money laundering and identity theft charges. The arrest is the result of an investigation conducted by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office under the direction of Chief Jason Love.

On March 31, 2022, following a month-long investigation, a search warrant was executed at HECTOR MORROBEL’s residence. MORROBEL was found to be in possession of over $26,000 in cash along with multiple fraudulent government documents with the personal identifying information of another person.

The investigation also revealed that MORROBEL is a fugitive from justice with an active warrant related to charges in Massachusetts.

HECTOR MORROBEL was charged with third-degree money laundering, N.J.S.A. 2C:21-25a; fourth-degree impersonation, N.J.S.A. 2C:21-17a(4); and fourth-degree possession of a fraudulent driver’s license, N.J.S.A. 2C:21-2.1(d). He was remanded to the Bergen County Jail pending his first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack, NJ.

Prosecutor Mark Musella states that the charges are merely accusations and that the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, and he would like to thank the Hackensack Police Department, Bergen County Sheriff’s Department, and the Bergen County Regional SWAT Team for their assistance in this investigation.
