By on November 14, 2018

Conor McGee, age 35, of Verona, was arrested yesterday and charged with lewd behavior as a result of an incident last month.

According to the Verona Police Department, on October 1, McGee was observed masturbating inside his vehicle by two juveniles in the area of 510 Bloomfield Avenue, while they were walking home from school. The police say the two juveniles were able to capture “an excellent description” of the suspect and his vehicle and immediately reported the incident at police headquarters.

After an investigation, which included the review of surveillance footage from local businesses and interviews, McGee was identified and charged with fourth degree lewdness, which typically indicates that the behavior was witnessed by a child under the age of 13. He was arrested on Tuesday, November 13, processed and transported to the Essex County Correctional Facility. Officer Alyssa Kirby and Det/Sgt Timothy Banta were the investigating officers for Verona

The Verona Police are reminding parents and guardians to ensure that their school-aged children know and understand to always stay alert and report all suspicious activity.
