Police: SoCal Man Used iPhone For Thousands Of Upskirt Photos, Videos

SAN DIEGO (CBS) — An Escondido man is behind bars Friday on charges stemming from what police said is the most disturbing case of “peeping” they have ever seen.

KNX 1070’s Tom Reopelle reports Julio Cesar Garcia, 22, is accused of taking over 2,100 photos and videos up the skirts of women and girls.

Garcia allegedly used his iPhone at several businesses in the North County to take pictures of women and young girls with little apparent regard for whomever may have been nearby, police said.

“The very first video that started this whole thing, a boyfriend and his girlfriend and he’s within a foot of the boyfriend and a foot of the girlfriend,” said Escondido Police Lt. Craig Carter.

Garcia targeted patrons at outlets ranging from gas stations and convenience marts to large retail and pet stores.

In one video, Garcia allegedly snapped photos while waiting in line at an ice cream parlor.

“There was what looked like a 3- or 4-year-old girl next to mom, and he’s filming up mom’s skirt while they’re both waiting for ice cream, said Carter. “Very brazen.”

Authorities have identified as many as four victims so far and are asking anyone who believes they may have been a victim to contact Escondido police.
