The Forsyth County Sheriff's Office arrested an Alpharetta man after he was caught taking pictures underneath a woman's skirt at a local restaurant.
Stephen M. Roegge, 55, was charged with one count of Peeping Tom and one count of unlawful eavesdropping or surveillance. Both are felonies.
On Monday at the Firehouse Subs in Cumming, an undercover Forsyth County investigator was standing in line to place his order when he saw Roegge place his cell phone directly under the skirt of a woman who was standing in line and begin taking pictures.
"Our investigator then approached the man and asked him to step outside," said Sheriff Paxton. "The investigator talked to Roegge about what he had seen and Roegge admitted to taking the photos."
Another customer in the restaurant also came forward and told the investigator that he also saw Roegge taking the photos.
The victim, a 34-year-old Cumming woman, was unaware that she was the victim of a Peeping Tom until she was approached by the investigator.
"In today's electronic world, people have to be cautious of their surroundings at all times," added Sheriff Paxton.
The phone was taken into evidence and forensic testing is being done to determine if there could be other victims.
Roegge was taken to the Forsyth County Detention Center where he was released Monday afternoon on an $11,220 bond. He is scheduled to appear in Superior Court on Aug. 1.
