Jim Gregory, A Creepy Predator
I was told last week that a search warrant was executed at Jim Gregory's Bethlehem home. I decided against writing about it because I thought it could interfere with a police investigation. But WFMZ-TV69 has now broken the story about last week's police raid at his home. It was prompted by a complaint that he had installed a camera in his bedroom so he could surreptitiously record his girlfriend while they were having sex.
This guy is a creepy predator.
Not only did he admit that he was secretly recording his girlfriend, whom he supposedly thought was stealing from him, but he himself is the person who foolishly informed Channel 69 of the police raid. Secretly recording her is wiretapping. By his own admission, he committed a felony of the third degree.
On Facebook, where he really should stop posting, he admits that the camera was purchased by someone using his name and his computer.
Maybe that's because it was him.
He also states that police missed his safe deposit key, which he calls the "real evidence."
He tells a friend "to warn Callahan" to "have the police get my stuff back soon. And Narlesky is screwed for signing a warrant with hearsay."
So far, he is suing Mayor John Callahan, Judge Jim Narlesky, DA John Morganelli, Bethlehem police,
Gregory is obviously a taker who preys on people. Unfortunately, as a caseworker, he comes into regular contact with older people having mental health concerns. How many of these people have fallen victim to someone who increasingly looks like a Dickensian villain?
I can think of two occasions in which he brought "clients" to Council meetings, using them like props.
But there's more.
Gregory is a constant gambler who apparently thinks his office is the Sands Casino. He uses his "clients" to feed his gambling habit. He has taken and used money cards that are provided for them by the casino. He does have their permission, but is this really voluntary?
Finally, just how did he get the house he owns in Bethlehem? I know. I also know how much he spent for the funeral of the woman who lived there.
He is a taker, a user who takes advantage of people.
And a Lehigh Valley Labor Council VP. Hopefully, not for long.
