TRENTON – The investigation into Assemblyman Robert Schroeder, charged with writing nearly $400,000 in bad checks to his company’s investors, began in March, and covered a time frame from July 2011 to July this year, Attorney General Jeff Chiesa said today.

The alleged bad checks were passed to two people, Chiesa said, but he would not divulge much more because the investigation into the one-time gubernatorial candidate is ongoing.

The complaint brought today against Schroeder, whose company makes tents and related products for the military, involves the bad checks passed to two investors, Chiesa said.

Chiesa would not comment during a press conference on what the checks were for, who the investors were, or how the investigation began, but said the probe is ongoing.

“We receive information from all different sources that leads professionals in criminal justice to track down leads,’’ Chiesa said.

“Deliberately writing bad checks when you know you don’t have the funds to back them is a serious crime,” he said. AG: Schroeder passed bad checks to 2 investors
