Store's Guards Use CCTV to Catch Video Voyeur

Dec. 9--A Davie man secretly making video recordings up women's skirts at a local department store was caught on a security camera and arrested, police said.

Jon Fletcher, 31, was released from jail Friday after posting bail on a charge of video voyeurism, said Davie Police spokesman Lt. Bill Bamford.

Police say Fletcher went into the Kmart in the 1800 block of South University Drive about 4 p.m. Wednesday with a digital camera and recorded images of at least eight women. Fletcher placed the camera in a baseball cap and slid the hat on the floor to rest between the unsuspecting shoppers' feet as they browsed clothing racks.

Two security guards monitoring the store's surveillance cameras saw Fletcher, detained him, then turned him over to police.

When officers arrived, Fletcher cooperated and showed them the pictures and video images he had captured.

But he was stumped when they asked why he did it.

"He had no explanation for it," Bamford said.

Fletcher was booked into the Broward County Jail early Thursday on one count of video voyeurism. He was released on $500 bail Friday.

He could not immediately be reached for comment.

Bamford said the behavior is pretty low -- literally.

"Women get consumed, [and] so do men," he said. "Who would ever expect that anyone would slide a camera between their legs?"
