The man deputies say stalked young girls and took cellphone photos and videos up their skirts at an Orlando-area Best Buy last month has been arrested.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office arrested 44-year-old James “Jimbo” Jones at his mother’s home in the 6000 block of Rivo Alto Drive in South Orlando Monday night.
Lancaster Elementary School is one street away from the home Jones shares with his mother.
A school official said that they have not had any reports of video voyeurism on campus.
Deputies haven’t had any reports of Jones at the school but said the video voyeurism is an open investigation and anyone with additional information is urged to call Crimeline at 800-423- 8477.
Surveillance video captured a voyeur at the store at 8350 S. Orange Blossom Trail at 8:30 p.m. Sept. 18.
Deputies released the video Thursday.
The next day, a neighbor called authorities and identified the man as Jones, according to the arrest report.
Four other tipsters called Crimeline and said the voyeur was Jones.
When deputies showed Jones’ mother the Best Buy surveillance video she positively identified her son, the report said.
Deputies went to his mother’s house Monday and allegedly found Jones with 21 marijuana plants in a shed in the back yard, less than 20 grams of cannabis and drug paraphernalia.
“My mother has nothing to with this — the plants are mine,” Jones told deputies.
He was booked into the Orange County Jail on two felony counts of video voyeurism, 20 counts of cultivation of cannabis, possession of cannabis and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Jones’ arrest record in Orange County dates back to 1990 and includes convictions of battery on a law enforcement officer and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in 1994.
