Burlington County Man Arrested in Computer Related Theft

Mount Holly, NJ - Burlington County Prosecutor Robert D. Bernardi announces the arrest of a Delanco N.J. man charged with computer related theft that involved the defendant deleting files from his former employerís computer system. The defendant is identified as Gary Rozecki, age 36, of 307 Maple Ave, Delanco, NJ.

At approximately 6:00 a.m. this morning members of the Burlington County Prosecutorís Office Major Crimes Unit, Delanco Township Police and New Jersey State Police detectives from the NJSP High Tech Crime Unit executed a search warrant at the defendantís home. The defendant was arrested at that location without incident and detectives seized his computer. The charges involve accessing a data base and altering, damaging or destroying a data base. The defendant was transported to the Burlington County Prosecutorís Office, process and placed in the Burlington County Jail in lieu of $25,000 set by the Burlington County Superior Court.

Background: On May 9, 2006 Rozecki was terminated from his job as a Systems Administrator for Franklin Electronics located at 1 Franklin Plaza in Burlington Township, NJ. At approximately 6:25 that evening the Franklin Electronics computer server which is located in Hong Kong, China, was logged into by an I.P address that matches that of the defendants home IP address. The suspect possessed the password to log onto this particular server which maintains continued communication between Franklin Electronics in New Jersey and Hong Kong. At approximately 6:29 pm on May 9th the virtual disk service which manages disk drives was activated. The virtual partition of the drive was then deleted and all communication between Hong Kong and New Jersey was lost.

On May 10, 2006 the staff at Franklin Electronics discovered that access to company email; printer communication and third party shared files were no longer available. It was discovered by a Hong Kong employee that data drive D was no longer present on the server. The investigation revealed that the companyís employee records showed that Rozecki documented on May 6, 2006 that he spent two hours conducting system maintenance on the Burlington server. The I.P address he used matches that of his home I.P address.

The investigation is on-going and additional details will be released as they become available. No future court dates have been scheduled. If convicted on all charges the defendant faces 5-10 years in state prison.
