MORRIS PLAINS — Adam Klymko, 31, a former Morris Plains police officer pleaded guilty to stealing from his local Policemen’s Benevolent Association while serving as the union’s treasurer.

Morris County Prosecutors Office charged Klymko on Wednesday, June 3, with one count of theft by unlawful taking or disposition, in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:20-3a, a crime of the third degree.

According to Klymko’s Linkedin Profile, he has been a Morris Plains Police Officer since January 2012.

During an online hearing, Klymko admitted to taking at least $85,000 from Morris Plains PBA Local 254 between January 2018 and March 2020, withdrawing the funds to pay for bills and other personal expenses, according to Daily Record.

Klymko resigned from the Police Department in June, according to the borough clerk’s office. He will be barred from working as a public employee or serving in public office under a plea deal negotiated with the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office.

Prosecutors are recommending that Klymko be sentenced to five years of probation for the crime and that he be required to pay back the PBA. The amount of restitution is still under debate — prosecutors say Klymko stole $91,170, while his attorney, Patrick Caserta, claims the amount is about $6,000 less.
