HACKENSACK, NJ -- A Hackensack Police Lieutenant has been arrested on accusations he used a GPS tracker to stalk his estranged wife, Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Dennis Calo announced.
Lt. Richard Levis, a resident of Butler, is charged with one count of burglary, a third degree crime, and one count of stalking, a fourth degree crime, authorities said.
The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office received information on December 30 that Levis may have placed a GPS tracking device in his estranged wife’s vehicle without her permission.

Levis is scheduled to appear in Central Judicial Processing Court on January 23 on 8:30 a.m. Public records indicate Levis earns $168,416 per year.
