A spokesperson for the Alameda County Jail has confirmed that a 45-year-old Peeping Tom has been arrested and charged with misdemeanor invasion of privacy with a camcorder.
The charge, which is classified as being a misdemeanor, led to the man being held on $5,000 bail bonds.
Authorities say the indent happened in mid-October, adding that they were tipped off about the suspect by a person who was shopping at the Stoneridge shopping center.
The caller indicated a man was recording people who were changing inside fitting rooms.
When officers arrived, they found a camera that was stashed inside a bag that had been left on the fitting room floor.
The suspect is believed to have recorded a woman who was trying on clothing.
That same man was detained by store employees until police officers arrived.
Santa Rita Jail officials haven’t indicated if the man has a prior history of arrest, or whether he was found to have outstanding warrants at the time he was booked.
