TOMS RIVER - Toms River Intermediate East parents have just been informed that a retired state trooper has been indicted in the January sexual assault of a teacher at the school.

The school has told parents that Bruce Figular, 50, is charged with unlawfully gaining entry to the school, sexual assault and impersonating a law enforcement officer.

Police say the suspect entered the school on Jan. 14 as a teacher was holding a door open for students at dismissal. Figular flashed his badge when he was questioned by another teacher, according to authorities.

The Ocean County Prosecutor's Office says it is comfortable with the security measures in place at the school, but that proper procedures must always be enforced.
