FLEMINGTON, NJ – A Flemington man is in Somerset County Jail after being charged with identity theft.

Andres Reyes-Cruz, 48, was arrested without incident, according to a press release issued by Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns III, Chief of Detectives John J. Kuczynski and Flemington Borough Police Chief George Becker.

The arrest followed a joint investigation by Prosecutor Kearns’ Major Crimes Unit, the Office of Homeland Security and Flemington Police Department.
