ASBURY PARK -

A former Asbury Park police officer was found guilty Wednesday of tipping off gang members about police investigations.

Keith German was convicted of three counts of official misconduct, including hindering the apprehensions of gang members.

Officials say that the gang members stalked a woman who turned down German’s advances in exchange for the information.

German resigned from the Asbury Park police force in May and then went on the run. He was captured in North Carolina in June.
