A part-time employee with the city of Santa Monica has been placed on paid administrative leave following his arrest for allegedly taking inappropriate photographs of children during a Santa Monica Police Activities League outing to a Los Angeles Dodgers game.

Los Angeles police arrested Donald Condon, 55, of Culver City on May 30 on suspicion of misdemeanor child annoyance, according to a statement by Santa Monica police Lt. Jay Moroso.

Condon, a community service specialist with the city, was put on paid administrative leave on June 2, according to the statement.

Further details were not immediately available.

“The city takes this situation very seriously and is cooperating with the Los Angeles authorities,” Moroso wrote. “The city took immediate action to inform the families of those youth who participated in the outing and will continue to take steps to ensure the wellbeing of the youth.”
