NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — A Long Island man caught with child porn is under arrest after he was seen snapping photos of a 5-year-old this weekend at Jones Beach, police said.

John Meehan from North Babylon has been hit with charges of possession of a sexual performance by a child. He’s also charged with unlawful surveillance.

Police say it happened during the Jones Beach air show on Saturday.

“It makes me sick to my stomach,” said one parent told CBS2. “It’s very, like, gut-wrenching. I don’t want to hear about a guy taking pictures of little kids because that’s sick.”

Another parent noticed Meehan’s picture-taking and confronted him.

Police were called and found the alleged evidence.
