New Jersey Sheriff’s Officer Gets Prison Term in Missing Cocaine Case

TOMS RIVER, N.J. — The former commander of the Ocean County Sheriff’s Department’s canine unit who stole cocaine that was meant to train the dogs has been sentenced to three years in prison.

John Adams had pleaded guilty last December to official misconduct and theft. He must serve at least two years of the sentence imposed Friday before he becomes eligible for parole.

Prosecutors have said the 41-year-old Toms River man diverted more than 1 kilogram of cocaine intended for training and ingested it. He forfeited his job as part of his plea and can never hold another government job in New Jersey.

Adams had been a sheriff’s officer for 16 years.
