St. Petersburg, FL (SafeCITY) - William Wright, a 53-year-old Florida man, was arrested after he allegedly attached a video camera to his shoe and proceeded to video tape up women's skirts in a St. Petersburg supermarket.

According to St. Petersburg police, Wright went to great lengths to capture upskirt images of various women before a female recognized his activities and informed police.

Investigators say a female witness who had seen Wright video-taping women on two prior occasions, notified management when she recognized him at a Florida Publix Saturday.

Deputies say the woman and a store manager watched Wright as he allegedly looked for women wearing skirts. When Wright found a woman he was interested in photographing, he reportedly followed her to the check out line and then slid his foot under her skirt.

Officers stopped Wright and escorted him back to the store's back office. A search turned up several computer flash drives in his pockets along with a trigger device that activated a video camera in his pants. The camera's lens was attached to Wright's shoe.

Wright was booked into the Pinnelas County Jail on a charge of video voyeurism. He was released a few hours later after posting an undisclosed bond amount.
