Man caught in my town for secretly taping women tanning!
September 19, 2007 11:45am CST
Yesterday a man aged 45 was caught by the investigators and taken into custody when he was found with tapes from secretly taping women when they were getting undressed and tanning at his salon.It was going on for half a year.He opened a tanning salon about 1 year ago.No wonder alot went to go there,it was cheap about 2,50/session and i was one of them that started going but then quite after 4 times!Im hoping im not one of them he taped.The camera was found in the airconditioner that he said was broken and he put a large fan in the room for the heat.I always felt like it was weird but never paid attention,because i never thought about something like this happeneing in my little town.Now im waiting to see if the police will show up here for questioning,but im not contacting them to teel them i went there too.Im too shy&ashamed if anyone found out about me tanning there too.Do you feel safe when your changing clothes at a store or a public bathroom?I dont anymore.How do you feel towards something like this if it happened to you?I feel ashamed now and betrayed by my someone invading MY PRIVACY!!!I dont know how to react or even begin thinking about what happened.:(:(:(

Hi gabs.No i was not one of them.I found out he started doing it after he opened up about 4 months later.(i went before)I went when he first opened up and quite after 3 sessions.I caught a bad burn by staying too long and developed a cold from becoming hot and then going outside where it was very cold.We found out he was only taping a couple of women that were regular customers there.They were very attractive ones.As far as i know so far he lost his business and can never open another one up and got a fine.Kind of like a slap on the hand.

That's awful! I'm so sorry you are dealing with that! It's so creepy that some people would do things like that to invade other people's privacy, especially when he was even getting paid by the people who were coming there to tan! Thank goodness he was caught.

Well around here there are quite a few of creepy people.One i dont trust him as far as i could throw him.Hes around 56 drives a bicycle in town and is,well out of the normal.Hes alway hanging out at the little mall scratching scratch tickets all day.He seems to like young babies alot.He makes a point of going over where they are and talking to their moms and such.I dont like the way he stares at them.Its like somethings abnormal the way hes staring!He did this with my daughter when she was little,i always avoided him.My daughter says now "Mommy theres the crazy man!".lol and yes im glad the other nutjar was caught for what he did!.Im sure he will get off of it with just a fine and a warning.People here will not let him forget about it though,being such a small town that is.:)

I would contact the police immediately and let them know that I was there in case you are on the tape. You can help prosecute him if you are and that is what needs to happen. He is a pervert who should be behind bars. I go tanning but I personally know the lady who owns the shop and so I don't worry about going there.However, I am extremly leary of going to dressing rooms or public restrooms because of these exact things.

Well i just found out about it this morning when i went in town.Thats why there was a special blue police van in town yesterday,i was wondering why and now i know.Im waiting for my boyfriend to come home from work at 6:30 tonight.He taped alot ofpeople,but i dont even know if i was one of them.I dont want to say something if i wasnt on the tape in the first place because of embarrasement,but then again he needs alot of people against him for him to get something.

Im hoping he didnt either!But its like i knew something was just not right!I should of listened to my instincts,he was a nice guy,very friendly and married.His wife was kind of cookoo a little bit.Before he opened his tanning salon,he had a little store and closed that.Shortly after about 3 months,he opened the salon.Almost everyone,mentoo,but mostly women went there because there is only 2 in our town and he made good deals and had 2 laying beds and 1 standing up one.It was easy to get a tan there because the beds were new.Crumbucket!I hope he gets whats coming to him!.
