MCKEESPORT (KDKA) – The acting fire chief of the Versailles Volunteer Fire Department is facing charges after being caught having sex with a minor.

According to police, McKeesport officers on patrol spotted two people naked inside a vehicle parked in the 400 block of Water Street. The two were engaging in sexual activities.

Officers noted the male appeared to be in his 40s, while the girl appeared to be a teenager. The male was later identified as Aaron Powell.

The girl initially told police she was 18, but she couldn’t produce identification. As a result, officers drover her home and spoke with her mother. The girl’s mother confirmed she was 17. The mother also said her daughter was friends with Powell’s daughter.

Powell is now facing charges of public lewdness and corruption of a minor.

In addition to the charges, Powell has been removed from the Versailles Volunteer Fire Department. The department issued a statement on Facebook, which reads in part: “In light of the recent allegations the Versailles Volunteer Fire Company must inform you as of this morning said fire chief who was been accused of illegal actions was removed from office and is no longer affiliated with the department.”
