Police: Mall voyeur had over 100,000 up-skirt photos of teen girls

PUYALLUP, Wash. – A 36-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly taking up-skirt videos of teen girls inside South Hill Mall.

Police say Nicholas Shreck was spotted Sunday by one of the mall security guards following girls around a store with a small shopping basket in his hand. The guard suspected the man was filming up the girls' skirts and contacted police.

When officers arrived, they found a video camera inside the shopping basket that had been hidden by cardboard and newspaper, police said. Shreck was arrested.

Investigators later examined the camera and found over 100,000 digital photos and numerous hours of video, taken in various grocery and department stores. Many of the images and video were of girls in their early teens, prosecutors said.

Shreck later admitted to police officers he used the video for his personal sexual gratification, investigators said.

Shreck was arraigned Monday afternoon and is being held on $150,000 bail.
