TOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP) - Authorities in Ocean County have charged a Lakewood police officer with official misconduct stemming from what they say was an illegal search of a vehicle.

Patrolman Jeremy Felder has been suspended without pay.

The county prosecutor’s office says investigators allege Felder participated in an illegal search of a vehicle in which illegal controlled dangerous substances were seized in August. Officials say the patrolman falsified documents and police reports to conceal his wrongdoing.

Felder joined the Lakewood Police Department in August 2011.

It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
