QUINCY -- A Quincy man was arrested Thursday after police say he inappropriately touched a juvenile.

The Quincy Police Department said Charles E. DeWeese, 38, of 2230 Payson Ave., was arrested Thursday after the department was notified by the Department of Children and Family Services of the alleged incident.

While executing a search warrant at DeWeese's home, police say they found hidden cameras and microphones.

Court records show DeWeese was charged with one count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, a Class 2 felony.

He made his first court appearance Friday, where bond was set at $25,000.

DeWeese was released from the Adams County Jail after he posted $2,500 bond. He is scheduled to return to court May 12.
