The Berks County District Attorney’s Office has announced they have filed additional charges against Jason McCully, the former Chief of Elverson-Honeybrook Area EMS, after recovering new video of a hidden camera setup in the bathroom of his private residence.
McCully was initially arrested in late August after being accused of placing a hidden recording device in a restroom of the station building. Read more here: Former EMS chief accused of hiding camera in station restroom
On June 15, 2022, Detectives served a search warrant at the Defendant’s residence in the 2900 block of Main Street in Caernarvon Township. Detectives say several electronic devices (cellular telephones, computers, hard drives) were seized.
Forensic examinations were conducted on the devices. As a result, investigators determined that McCully set up a hidden camera in the bathroom of his private residence. This hidden camera video recorded two different females inside this bathroom while in various stages of undress. One of these females was later identified as a juvenile, under 18 years of age. Subsequently, the additional charges were filed.
Additional charges include, Criminal Attempt -Sexual Abuse of Children, Criminal Attempt -Sexual Abuse of Children-Possess of Child Pornography, Interception/Disclosure of Wire/Electronic/Oral Communication, Possession of Device for Intercepting Communications, and Invasion of Privacy.
McCully is currently in the Berks County Jail, and is expected to be arraigned on the new charges at a later time.
A Criminal Complaint is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
