NYPD detective busted after setting ‘cheating’ hubby’s clothes on fire New York City Police Department (NYPD)

An NYPD detective was arrested Tuesday in Long Island for allegedly torching clothes belonging to her cop husband – who she suspected of cheating on her, law enforcement sources said.
Det. Marissa Sorocco, who works in NYPD Deputy Commissioner Dermot Shea’s office at police headquarters in Manhattan, has been arrested by Nassau County Police and charged with arson in the fifth degree and criminal mischief, a law enforcement source said.
Nassau County police believe that Sorocco’s motive for lighting the fire was her belief that her husband, Paul, a Nassau County offcier, had been having an ongoing affair.
Marissa Sorocco allegedly set his clothes on fire at their home in Plainview, according to two law enforcement sources.
Investigators don’t know if the hubby was, in fact, having an extra-marital fling as his wife believed, law enforcement sources said.
“They (detectives) believe she set the fire as revenge for her husband’s suspected infidelity,” a source said.
The detective was arrested Tuesday morning and she’s been suspended by the NYPD, sources said.
She’s being held overnight and expected to be arraigned on Wednesday morning in Nassau County District court.
Paul Sorocco is a former NYPD cop, who once worked in the 102nd Precinct in Queens. Marissa Sorocco, a third-grade detective, made nearly $140,000 this year with overtime.
Reached at his home in Sorocco declined to comment and slammed a door on a reporter.
