Shoe Camera Under Women’s Skirts Lands San Rafael Man In Jail

FAIRFAX (CBS/AP) — A Marin County man suspected of peeping under women’s skirts with a camera attached to his shoe had video of more than two dozen women, according to police.

Nicholas Charles Springer of San Rafael was arrested Wednesday night. Fairfax police said they found images of about 35 women at three locations in Fairfax on the camera.

Springer’s arrest at the Fairfax Farmers Market came after a witness there reported a man using a shoe camera to take lewd pictures of women.

Cpl. Rhonda Tuscher said that an officer who responded to the report saw Springer hold his foot underneath a woman’s skirt for a few seconds before walking away.

Springer was booked into county jail on suspicion of peeping with a concealed camera and violating probation. He was expected to make his first court appearance on Friday.
