Bryan was released on a summons pending court proceedings.

Sutherland's office says Bryan is currently suspended without pay from the Middle Township Police Department until this case goes through the court system.

A person convicted of a third-degree crime, such as witness tampering, can land a three to a five-year prison sentence if convicted.

Sutherland says this investigation continues and anyone with information should contact the Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office at (609) 465-1135 or Cape May County Crime Stoppers at (609) 889-3597.

The public is reminded that charges are accusations and all persons are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
