On Wednesday, December 15, 2021, members of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Cyber Crimes Unit executed a search warrant at the residence of JOHN TUCCERI during a months-long Internet child pornography investigation.

TUCCERI was remanded to the Bergen County Jail pending a first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack.

Prosecutor Musella states that the charges are merely an accusation and that the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Prosecutor Musella thanks the Fairview Police Department for its assistance, as well as the Lyndhurst Police Department and Bergen County Sheriff’s Office which participate in the Bergen County Cyber Crimes Task Force.
