The arrest is the result of an investigation conducted by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office under the direction of Chief Robert Anzilotti and the Hackensack Police Department under the direction of Officer In Charge Captain Peter Busciglio.
In March 2019, the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) Security and Investigation Unit notified the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Financial Crimes Unit that Jayne D.

A check of its system also revealed that in November 2011 GARRIDO-CONTRERAS had obtained a non-driver identification under the name of a Florida resident.
An investigation by the BCPO’s Financial Crimes Unit revealed that GARRIDOCONTRERAS opened three bank accounts using the fraudulent identity and social security card. In January 2019, GARRIDO-CONTRERAS filed a police report with the Hackensack Police Department using the false identification alleging that she was the victim of fraud.
