NEW ROCHELLE, NY — A New Rochelle High School Security Guard was arrested Monday night in Putnam County.

Robert T. “Bobby” Mclean Jr., age 54, of Waterbury, CT was arrested April 9, 2018 by the New York State Police and charged with Possession of a Forged Instrument, a Class D felony, and Criminal Impersonation in the 2nd degree, a Class A misdemeanor.

On April 9, 2018, at approximately 10:45 p.m., Troopers initiated a traffic stop of a 2002 Mercedes Benz for a violation of the vehicle and traffic law on Interstate 84 in the town of Southeast, NY. McLean was interviewed by the Troopers to whom he displayed a Mount Vernon Housing Police shield, and a forged police identification card. 

McLean was arraigned before the town of Patterson Court, and remanded to the Putnam County Jail in lieu of $1,000 cash bail or $3,000 bond.  McLean is next scheduled to appear before the town of Southeat Court on April 19, 2018, at 1:00 p.m.

Talk of the Sound first began reporting on McLean in 2011.

McLean has a long history of disciplinary  issues as an employee of the New Rochelle Board of Education. Talk of the Sound has previously incidents of McLean having sex with students including in the high school and stealing money from a “forced savings” racket.

McLean has been placed on 30 day suspension twice, prior to the most recent incident. In one case, McLean was accused of sexually harassing a student. In another, he was accused of sexually harassing a teacher. He most recently came off suspension prior to the start of the 2017-18 school year. Efforts were made by building leadership to transfer McLean but no other building would take him.
