A former contractor accused of installing mirrors inside bathroom stalls to spy on young girls at a Camden County school was facing new charges this week after investigators found more videos on his tablet, the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office and Gloucester Township Police announced Thursday.
Gregory Mahley, 51, of West Deptford, was originally charged with one count each of endangering the welfare of a child by manufacturing and possessing child pornography, and invasion of privacy, but now faced seven counts of second degree and third degree endangering the welfare of a child and eight counts of invasion of privacy, the office said.
Mahley worked for eight years for Multi-Temp Mechanical, Inc., located in Westville, which had been contracted to do work on the HVAC system of Glen Landing Middle School, authorities said.
Police said he installed mirrors onto the back of bathroom stall doors that allowed him to secretly record girls using the restroom through an air conditioning vent.
Once the mirrors were discovered, school officials found Mahley inside the utility closet where he recorded the videos, the office said. During the investigation, multiple devices were seized from his home and his work vehicle.
While performing a search of a tablet he owned, detectives located videos of six minor female students and one adult which lead to the additional charges, authorities said. Investigators were still searching other devices seized from Mahley as the investigation into his alleged crimes continued.
“I am very disturbed to learn of criminal charges filed today against an employee of an outside contractor who was performing HVAC work at Glen Landing Middle School,” Superintendent John Bilodeau told NJ Advance Media last week.
Police inspected all schools and facilities Mahley had access to, and did not find any additional suspicious activities and were investigating other buildings he might have worked in, the office said.
Anyone with information about Mahley’s alleged activities was asked to call Camden County Prosecutor’s Office Det. Briana Hagan at 609-508-3333 or Gloucester Township Police Det. Brian Farrell at 856-228-4500.
