An Ocean City Police Officer is on administrative leave after authorities say someone found a tracking device on their car that was connected to the officer.

Jacob Harris, 32, was arrested and charged with a fourth-degree count of stalking, the Cape May County Prosecutor's Office said on Friday.

Harris, an Egg Harbor resident, was released on a summons pending court proceedings.

Officers from the Lower Township Police Department were called to a home Wednesday night after a person allegedly found a tracking device on their vehicle, investigators said.

The device was later found to be connected to Harris, according to police.

The prosecutor's office said anyone convicted of a fourth-degree crime could face up to 18 months in New Jersey State Prison.

The prosecutor's office did not release any information about the person who was tracked.
