Click here if you missed our story last week. In short, Miller's accused of drugging a teen boy who worked in his shop with alcohol and Lorazepam, taking him to back to his house, and sexually assaulting him. The kicker: it was the victim's first day working for Miller at Botanica, a religious goods store on Mott Street in Inwood.
WABC went out to Long Island over the weekend and grabbed some B-roll of Miller's house -- which is guarded by six surveillance cameras -- and caught up with a few of his neighbors.
Neighboring business owners say they see lots of activity in and out of the house at all hours of the night.
"It's a lot of attention for someone who's just a popular person," a neighbor said.
"I find it to be a little sketchy that he has surveillance cameras that you would find at a bank or the Pentagon. So when you see something like that I think it's a red flag by itself," another neighbor said.
As we mentioned, Miller also has a pretty lengthy rap sheet -- he has 10 convictions for various crimes in Nassau County alone ranging from sexual abuse to drug possession.For his latest alleged crime, Miller is charged with first-degree criminal sexual act, a class-B felony. His bail has been set at $2 million.
Attempts to reach Miller this afternoon were unsuccessful.See video from WABC below. Check out Miller's Facebook page here (there's pictures of kids -- it's creepy).
