Cape May Court House, New Jersey – Cape May County Prosecutor Jeffrey H. Sutherland along with Chief Christopher Leusner of the Middle Township Police Department announce an ongoing investigation into Gregory Mahley, 51 years old, of West Deptford, NJ, for Invasion of Privacy, Child Pornography, and Endangering the Welfare of a Child.
On September 9, 2020, the Gloucester Township Police Department arrested Gregory Mahley after mirrors were found girls bathroom stalls at the Glen Landing Middle School in Gloucester Township, NJ. Mahley was charged with second-degree Endangering the Welfare of a Child (Manufacturing of Child Pornography), third degree Invasion of Privacy, and third-degree Endangering the Welfare of a Child (Possession of Child Pornography).* Mahley was then lodged in the Camden County Correctional Center.
The Gloucester Township investigation revealed that Mahley, a commercial HVAC technician employed by Multi-Temp Mechanical, Inc., located in Westville, NJ, had been contracted by the Gloucester Township Board of Education to perform heating ventilation and air conditioning services. While working at the middle school, Mahley was found secretly recording females using the girl’s bathroom. During the investigation, officials seized numerous electronic devices from Mahley’s residence and vehicle and discovered the recordings of juvenile and adult victims.
As a result of that investigation and the cooperation of Mahley’s employer, Multi-Temp Mechanical, additional school districts have been identified where Mahley has performed HVAC services to include the Cape May County Technical High School, the Middle Township School District, and the administrative office of the Cape May County MUA.
Upon receiving this information, Detectives from the Cape May County Prosecutor's Office and the Middle Township Police Department immediately initiated a joint investigation with the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office to determine if Mahley has committed any crimes while providing HVAC services to schools and commercial buildings in Cape May County. According to Prosecutor Sutherland, this joint investigation is ongoing and he wants to reassure the residents of Cape May County that the above schools have been thoroughly checked and no mirrors or recording devices have been located.
Prosecutor Sutherland urges anyone who may have information related to Gregory Mahley or this investigation to contact the Middle Township Police Department at 609-465-8700, the Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victim’s Unit at 609-465-1135, or report it anonymously through the Cape May County Sheriff’s Tip Line at cmcsheriff.net and click on anonymous tip, or through the Cape May County Crime Stoppers, 609-465-2800.
