A Saco man was arrested Friday night for allegedly using a camera in his shoe to take photographs up women’s skirts and dresses at the Walmart store in Scarborough in July.
William Tibbals, 31, of Pepperal Street, was charged with a felony count of visual sexual aggression against a child under 12 and multiple counts of violating privacy.
Tibbals is being held at the Cumberland County Jail. Bail information is not yet available, Scarborough Police said.
The arrest followed a long investigation triggered by reports by customers that a man with a camera in his shoe was capturing images up women’s skirts, said Scarborough Police Detectives.
They were aided by the Saco Police Department Computer Forensics Unit and the Maine State Police Computer Crimes Unit out of Lewiston.
