The now-former Carlstadt Municipal Court administrator pocketed $3,125 of court funds, said authorities who arrested him.
John Clayborne, who turns 33 on Friday, came under suspicion after authorities received an anonymous letter, Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Dennis Calo said.
Clayborne, of East Orange, “misappropriated” the money from November 2015 through March 2016, Calo said.
He was charged with theft and released pending a July 11 first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack.
