CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE – Cape May County Prosecutor Jeffrey H. Sutherland and New Jersey State Police Colonel Patrick J. Callahan on Friday announced the arrest of Richard Hoffman, 24, of Mays Landing, on first degree child pornography charges.

This investigation is the result of information received from the September 2018 “Operation Open House” in Toms River, which was conducted by the New Jersey State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. During “Operation Open House,” Hoffman was arrested for alleged luring after chatting with an undercover detective posing as a 14-year-old female.

The teenage victim of this investigation resides in the Villas section of Lower Township.
