Sayreville Police Officer Arrested In Woodbridge

WOODBRIDGE, NJ — A Sayreville police officer was arrested in Woodbridge last month and is currently under investigation by the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office, Patch has exclusively learned.

Sayreville Police Officer James P. Pizzillo was arrested in Woodbridge Township on Saturday, April 8, while he was in his Sayreville patrol car. Pizzillo was charged with one count of covering up the camera in his patrol car, said James O’Neill, a spokesman for the Middlesex County Prosecutor. That is a fourth-degree charge of tampering.

Pizzillo has been removed from duty while the Middlesex County prosecutor’s office continues its investigation. O’Neill would release no further details about the arrest. When asked about the arrest, Sayreville police referred all questions to the Middlesex County Prosecutor. The Woodbridge police department did the same.

Pizzillo is a young police officer who just joined the Sayreville force in January of 2015. He is an Iraq war veteran and comes from a family of law enforcement. His brother is a Sayreville police officer, and his father is a retired police chief with the South Amboy Police Department.
