New York State Police are investigating a possible case of sexual abuse at a camp for Orthodox Jewish boys in upstate Monticello, N.Y.

A kosher food truck driver has been captured on camera sneaking onto campus of Camp Shalva early on the morning of August 8 and entering bunkhouses of 13-to-14 year old boys, according to JTA.

The campers reported the incident later the morning to camp supervisors, and were told not to tell their parents immediately, the New York Post reported.

Three days later, the camp contacted a prosecutor, and he put them in touch with the district attorney and state police.

The alleged molester is registered sex offender Yoel Oberlander, an employee of Golden Taste, who in 2002 pleaded guilty to molesting an 11-year-old girl. He was sentenced to six years of probation, according to the 5 Towns Jewish Times.
