Weirdo of the Week
This is a loser extraordinaire
Slidell Police arrested a Picayune, Miss., man who allegedly used a cell phone to take pictures up women's dresses as they shopped at Wal-Mart on Monday, authorities said.
A 39-year-old woman who was shopping at a Slidell Walmart on Natchez Drive told police the man, 36-year-old Shannon House, walked up behind her and tried to take a picture up her dress as she bent over, Slidell Police Capt. Kevin Foltz said. The woman moved as he took a picture and then followed him as he walked away, Foltz said.
House then repeated his actions with another woman in the store, Foltz said.
After House had moved on, the witness approached the woman and asked if she knew him, Folltz said. The other woman told her she didn't, he said.
The 39-year-old woman went to the store's loss prevention officer, and the two of them followed House while waiting for the police to arrive, Foltz said. The two saw House taking a picture up a third woman's dress, he said.
All three women later told police they noticed House following them around the store and found it suspicious, but didn't initially do anything about it, Foltz said.
Slidell Police Officers Clint McCall and Chris Culotta began questioning House, who told them that what he did "was stupid and I should not have done it."
House was booked into St. Tammany Parish Jail in Covington with three counts of video voyeurism. If convicted, House could be forced to register as a sex offender upon release.
