John Tucceri, 62, of Fairview, was charged with one count of second degree distribution of child pornography and one count of third degree possession of child pornography, authorities said.
The Daily Voice reported earlier today that Tucceri’s family has own the 8th Street Tavern in Hoboken for the past five decades.
On Wednesday, December 15th, members of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Cyber Crimes Unit executed a search warrant at the residence of Tucceri during a months-long Internet child pornography investigation.
The investigation revealed that he used the internet to view, download, possess and distribute files depicting nude and/or sexually explicit prepubescent children.
As a result of the investigation, Tucceri was arrested on December 15th in Paramus.
Musella thanked the Fairview Police Department for their assistance, as well as the Lyndhurst Police Department and Bergen County Sheriff’s Office, which participate in the Bergen County Cyber Crimes Task Force.
