A New Jersey man has been arrested and accused of using a mirror secreted in a basket to look up the dresses of women at a local Target store.
Ocean Township, New Jersey police charged 56-year-old Julius G. Reynolds with invasion of privacy after Target department store workers said they saw him placing a basket with a mirror attached to it on the floor next to female shoppers and using the mirror to look up the dresses and skirts of unsuspecting female shoppers.
According to Ocean PD Detective Lt. Timothy Torchia, Reynolds was arrested on May 16 and is being held at Monmouth County Correctional Institution on a $7,500 bail.
Reynolds already has a police record for such inappropriate behavior.
The suspect was arrested in 2007 for using his cell phone to take inappropriate photos of women in public and was later handed a three-year sentence on the charge.
Reynolds was placed on the New Jersey sex offender registry stemming from his 2008 conviction.
That isn’t all. Reynolds also has a criminal history including credit card fraud, drug offenses, and one conviction of child endangerment on his record.
