Vernon man arrested attempting to defraud drug test

  • Posted: January 23, 2015
  • Arrested: Christopher J. Fiorenza, age 25, of Vernon Township, NJ.

On Thursday, January 15, 2015, while assigned to the Sussex County Probation Department, Sheriff’s Officer Justin McCann was advised by probation staff that probationer Christopher Fiorenza was attempting to provide a fraudulent urine sample.

Officer McCann responded to their location and, following a brief investigation, discovered Fiorenza to be in possession of a device commonly used to defraud court-ordered drug screens.

Officer McCann immediately arrested Fiorenza and he was subsequently transported to the Sussex County Sheriff’s Office where he was charged with defrauding the administration of a drug test, a third degree crime.

Fiorenza was issued a summons to appear in court at a future date and released on his own recognizance.

Lieutenant Larry Beller and Sheriff’s Officer William Lunger assisted in the arrest.
