On Friday, July 6, members of the State Police Digital Technology Investigations Unit, K-9 Unit, and T.E.A.M.S Unit along with agents from the Department of Homeland Security and New Jersey State Parole arrested Sapara at his residence and executed a search warrant, which resulted in the seizure of a desktop computer and four external hard drives.
