SUGARLOAF TOWNSHIP -- A man accused of having sex with an underage girl is locked up in Luzerne County, and investigators say there may be more victims.

Police say Matthew Meyers, 26, of Dorrance Township, had sex with a 14-year-old girl several times.

He was charged with involuntary deviant sexual intercourse and corruption of minors at a magistrate's office in Sugarloaf Township.

According to court papers, the teenaged girl told her parents she was hanging out with a girlfriend when she would hang out with Meyers instead. She slept with him in his car and at a motel and had sex with him several times at a scenic overlook in Hollenback Township.

Police say Meyers befriends 14 and 15 year olds and often would pose as a father to gain the trust of parents. Investigators believe there may be other victims.

Neighbors who know Meyers were surprised to hear the news.

"I don't believe that. I really don't. He's a good guy. He helps my mom. He helps all the neighbors around here," said Frank Brazinski of Dorrance Township.

Meyers is now locked up in Luzerne County.

Anyone with information on possible other victims is asked to call state police in Hazleton.

      Believe it or not, there is a history in these parts of parents pimping off their young daughters to anyone willing to take them off their hands. Not so much the younger families, but it does occur still.

    ‘He’s a good guy’. ‘They were excellent role models’. ‘They were perfect parents.’ WTF is wrong with people? Are there really that many naive blind people out there? Just once I would like to hear someone say ‘They were friggen’ idiots, I can’t believe it took this long to get caught’ or ‘That guy has always been a real perve’. Take your blinders off people!
