#ChildMolester | Livermore Man, Firefighter Facing Child Molestation Charges

LIVERMORE, CA — A Livermore man who works as a San Mateo Consolidated Fire Department firefighter was placed on paid leave after he was arrested Sunday on suspicion of two counts of annoying or molesting a child and two counts of invading someone’s privacy by using a concealed video camera, officials said.

Simon Meyer, 52, was arrested by Livermore police early Sunday morning and booked hours later into Dublin’s Santa Rita Jail, where he remained Tuesday, jail records showed.

Police received a report of lewd and inappropriate conduct Saturday evening, police said in a statement. Meyer was identified as a suspect by detectives and arrested. Officers served a search warrant at his home, where police said the incident occurred.

There are two victims in this case, police said.

Robert Marshall, a fire marshal and spokesperson for San Mateo Consolidated Fire Department, said the department is cooperating with police and has no reason to believe the public was in any danger.

Meyer will remain on paid leave until legal proceedings have been resolved, Marshall said.

The Livermore Police Department investigation remains ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Ivan Alvarez at 925-371-4759.
