NORTH HALEDON, N.J. (AP) — A northern New Jersey mayor and police chief won’t face charges for taking borough generators for personal use following Superstorm Sandy last year.
The Record (http://bit.ly/1k3wSnY) reports the Passaic County prosecutor’s office wrote in a letter that there wasn’t evidence to warrant a criminal prosecution of North Haledon Mayor Randy George and Police Chief Robert Bracco.
In the days after Sandy caused widespread flooding and power outages, George borrowed a borough generator to use at his ice cream parlor and Bracco took one to his home.
Some council members were critical of the actions, but a council review cleared both men of wrongdoing.
George told the newspaper he agreed with the prosecutor’s decision but admitted he made “a stupid mistake.”
