Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal announced the arrest of CHRISTOPHER J. GREIG (DOB: 4/20/82; single; and employed as a dishwasher) of 26 Parker Avenue, Hawthorne, New Jersey on charges of Stalking, Contempt of Stalking Restraining Order, and Harassment. The arrest is the result of an investigation conducted by members of the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office Cyber Crimes Unit under the direction of Chief Robert Anzilotti.
On September 12, 2017, the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Cyber Crimes Unit was informed that a victim received numerous anonymous, alarming phone calls, which contained no caller ID information. The investigation revealed that Christopher J. GREIG utilized technology to block his caller ID information while placing these calls to the victim.
As a result of the investigation, Christopher J. GREIG was arrested on November 30, 2017 in Glen Rock, New Jersey and charged with one count of Stalking, N.J.S.A. 2C:12-10C, a third degree crime; one count of Contempt of a Stalking Restraining Order, N.J.S.A. 2C:29-9B(1), a fourth degree crime; and one count one of Harassment, N.J.S.A. 2C:33-4A, a disorderly persons offense. GREIG was remanded to the Bergen County Jail pending his arraignment, and is scheduled for a first appearance at Bergen County Central Judicial Processing Court on December 20, 2017, at 8:30 a.m.
Prosecutor Grewal states that these charges are merely accusations and that the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, and would also like to thank the Glen Rock Police Department under the direction of Chief Dean Ackermann for their assistance.
