A 48-year-old Mill Valley resident and local grocery store clerk was arrested Wednesday for alleged lewd behavior toward a teenage girl.
Andrew Meyers was arrested by Mill Valley Police at around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday at Whole Foods Market, where he works, in the Alto Shopping Center on East Blithedale Avenue.
Meyers was arrested on suspicion of committing a lewd or lascivious act towards a minor, a felony. In this case, the allegation came from a 14- or 15-year-old girl whom Meyers had met previously, according to police Lt. Ken Dunkel.
The girl told her parents Meyers made inappropriate comments to her inside the store while she was shopping there on Monday. He then allegedly followed her outside to the parking lot, made a series of lewd comments toward the girl and asked her if he could kiss her.
The girl told police that she then tried to walk away and Meyers grabbed her hand and kissed it, making additional lewd comments. The girl then left and told her parents, who called police.
Meyers was booked into Marin County Jail and remains in custody on 100,000 bail.
Meyers was arraigned Thursday on felony charges of committing a lewd act on a child and furnishing marijuana to a minor, and a misdemeanor child molestation charge. He has not yet entered a plea.
