HVAC tech accused of filming girls in school restrooms indicted on 38 counts

A Camden County grand jury has filed charges against a man who allegedly recorded videos of girls using toilets at various schools in South Jersey.

Gregory R. Mahley, 52, of West Deptford Township, used his job as an HVAC technician to gain entry to Glen Landing Middle School, in Gloucester Township, where prosecutors allege he used a utility closet next to a girls’ bathroom to spy on children through a vent and record videos of it with a tablet.

Police launched an investigation after mirrors were found on the inside of toilet room doors on September 9, 2020, the first day of the school year. They later found Mahley in the closet recording videos, prosecutors said.

Investigators say he took in seven girls between the ages of 12 and 13, and a teacher who uses the stalls.

Mahley was employed by Multi-Temp Mechanical, Inc. in Westville, who was hired to do work on the school’s air conditioning system. The company has cooperated with the investigation, authorities said earlier.

A search of computers at Mahley’s home revealed that he allegedly did the same at three high schools in Cape May and Gloucester counties in 2013 and 2014. Prosecutors in those counties collaborated with police in Middle, West townships. Deptford and Harrison along with school. officials to identify victims from those cases.

Investigators identified 13 additional victims in those incidents, bringing the total number of victims to 20, ranging in age from 12 to 17, along with one teacher.

Mahley is incarcerated in Camden County, where all cases are being heard, pending trial.

His charges include making and possessing images of child sexual abuse.
