WOODLAND PARK, N.J. – A Woodland Park police officer well-known in the community was charged with theft, authorities said Monday night.

Sgt. Thomas Bolen, 46 -- who has been a Boys and Girls Club president, Board of Education member and athletic coach -- was issued a summons to appear in court to answer a theft charge, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes said.

Valdes said the crimes occurred “on or April 1, 2016, through on or about December 2, 2016, from the Borough of Woodland Park” while Bolen worked as a police officer.

“It is alleged that he received compensation from the Borough for work he did not perform, and that the value of that compensation exceeded $500 but was less than $75,000,” she said, without elaborating.
