Hudson County’s Prosecutor, Esther Suarez, has unveiled details about a recent criminal investigation in Jersey City. On July 28, 2023, the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office Special Investigations Unit apprehended Zamir Thomas, a Jersey City Quality of Life Inspector, following a theft probe.

Thomas, 31, now faces a single count of Theft by Deception, classified as a third-degree crime in New Jersey (N.J.S.A. 2C:20- 4a). Officers made the arrest at the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office in Secaucus. Following this, the authorities released Thomas on a summons, scheduling his initial court appearance for August 8, 2023.

The investigation delved into his time-logging practices during work hours. It revealed that Thomas spent considerable time at his Jersey City residence while on the clock. This supposed discrepancy occurred multiple times, raising questions about his commitment to his role as a Jersey City Division of Quality of Life Inspector.

This arrest is a result of a meticulous investigation by the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office Special Investigations Unit. The Jersey City Special Investigations Unit also collaborated in this investigation, displaying excellent interdepartmental teamwork.

While these charges against Thomas are severe, they are currently only accusations. As per the rule R.P.C.3.6(b)(6), the law considers the defendant innocent until the court proves him guilty. For more information please log in to the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Website.
