EVESHAM — A 48-year-old man was arrested after driving to Staples to pick up a person he believed to be a minor, according to the Burlington County District Attorney’s Office.

Prosecutors said Daniel Gallagher, of Marlton, drove to the store on Route 70 on Wednesday. However, instead of meeting a 13-year-old, law enforcement officers from multiple agencies were waiting for him. He was arrested on the spot.

Along with the attempted meeting, Gallagher is accused of sending nude photos and videos to the teenager who was actually a member of law enforcement. Gallagher and texted them for several weeks after meeting on a chat app, prosecutors say.

Prosecutors said the investigation began this summer after Gallagher’s “online activities” were discovered, but did not disclose further details.

Gallagher is charged with second-degree attempt to lure a minor and attempted sexual assault. He also faces other third and fourth degree charges.

He is currently being held in Burlington County Jail pending a detention hearing.

In 2018, the so-called “passing the trash” law came into effect, requiring more stringent New Jersey school background checks related to child abuse and sexual misconduct.

The following people have been arrested in recent years. Some were found guilty and sentenced to prison, while others accepted plea deals for probation.

Other cases are still ongoing, including some court delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

What would happen to NJ if we were attacked by nuclear weapons?

We used Alex Wellerstein’s NUKEMAP to see what would happen if a nuclear warhead hit New York, Philadelphia, Washington or New Jersey.

Models show what would happen during an air detonation, meaning the bomb would be detonated into the sky, causing extensive damage to structures and people below; or what would happen in a detonation on the ground, which would have the alarming result of nuclear fallout. The models do not take into account the number of casualties that would result from the fallout.
