SOMERVILLE, N.J. (AP) - A suspended New Jersey police officer has admitted to meeting with an undercover detective to negotiate the sale of stolen computer equipment.

NJ.com reports (https://bit.ly/2aKKxQS ) 34-year-old Vincent Saggese pleaded guilty Tuesday to receiving stolen property. Under a plea agreement, the Metuchen man will be sentenced to probation and community service and must forfeit his job with the Plainfield Police Department.

He had been suspended without pay pending the outcome of the case.

Authorities say Saggese also accepted $250 from the detective and agreed to obtain the address of the owner of a license plate and provide the detective with a photo of that person.

Saggese is scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 4.
