A Massachusetts man is facing charges after police said he used his cell phone to secretly take video up a woman’s skirt.
Police said 42-year-old Joseph Ferrell, of Southampton, is being charged with voyeurism. He is a sales rep for Big Mouth Toys.
Witnesses reportedly saw Ferrell helping a woman take a sticker off her car while taking a photo up her skirt.
According to court documents, when witnesses confronted Ferrell about it, he started getting flustered and deleted photos.
He reportedly told police that he has become “addicted” to voyeurism over the past six months, and during that time he has taken about “100 videos and pictures of female legs, buttocks and up skirt,” including four or five videos of a female co-worker.
Documents also show Ferrell reportedly has been snapping photos of unsuspecting women right in the center of town.
"I have a daughter, so I think it's wrong, disgusting," said Alieah Morrone, who works in Glastonbury.
"I have three young girls so knowing that and we're in the park, we walk around here all the time," said Kara Lavoie, of Glastonbury.
Ferrell also reportedly told police he would go to Main Street and Hebron Avenue to take photos of women at the water fountain.
He was held on a $25,000 bond.
