A South Jersey police officer already in jail after being accused of molesting three children, has now been charged yesterday with four counts of animal cruelty for having sex with barnyard animals, authorities said.
Patrolman Robert Melia, 38, was suspended last week by the Moorestown Police department after authorities raided his Moorestown home and seized a computer and pornographic materials.
Police say that several others were also arrested during their investigation in what police say was porn movie making involving minor children, animals and others.
Melia and Pemberton filmmaker Heather Lewis, 32, were charged April 13 with the sexual assaults of three girls at Melia’s house. The assaults occured on multiple occasions during the last five years, said a spokesman for the Burlington County Prosecutor’s office said.
Melia is being held on $510,000 bail at the Burlington County Jail in Mount Holly. Lewis, who is charged with aggravated sexual assault and criminal sexual contact, is being held on $300,000 bail at the Women’s Detention Center in Pemberton.
The animal cruelty charges were filed after an examination of the seized materials, authorities said.
An investigation is continuing. Police said they were investigating four incidents involving cows.
Authorities say other charges may be forthcoming and possible others will be arrested in this case.
