Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella announced the arrest of SHENGJIN WU (DOB: 4/16/1992; married; employed as a casino dealer) of 511 Andrea Drive, Willow Grove, PA, on a charge of money laundering. The arrest is the result of an investigation conducted by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office under the direction of Chief Jason Love.

On September 7, 2023, during a narcotics investigation, detectives from the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Narcotic Task Force conducted a traffic stop of a vehicle as it traveled through Bergen County, NJ. The investigation revealed that the driver, SHENGJIN WU, was transporting $8,000 in cash, which was believed to be the proceeds of a narcotics transaction.

As a result of the investigation, SHENGJIN WU was arrested at the scene and charged with third-degree money laundering, N.J.S.A. 2C:21-25a. WU was released on a summons pending his first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack, NJ.

Prosecutor Musella states that the charge is merely an accusation and that the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, and he would like to thank the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office for its assistance in this investigation.
