A 27-year-old man from Utah has been living in the woods of Jenson Beach, Florida, doing some creepy and illegal stuff.
Pedro Valdez, 27, was arrested and charged with Video Voyeurism.
Deputies say Valdez has been living in the woods in Jensen Beach since moving here from Utah—where he is suspected to be involved in the same type of “perverted” criminal behavior.
Deputies began searching for Valdez after receiving multiple reports of a suspicious male photographing young children at the mall and other Jensen Beach shopping facilities.
“Fortunately, witnesses gave enough of a description of Valdez for deputies to stop a man riding a skateboard on Jensen Beach Boulevard near Federal Highway,” said MCSO.
Deputies questioned Valdez about photographing children, in which he admitted it was him.
Deputies say that in one case, Valdez even lifted the skirt of a young girl and snapped photos of her undergarments before running off.
“Further investigation revealed that Valdez had multiple images of such material on his phone,” said MCSO.
Martin County Sheriff’s Officeis asking anyone who may have had a run-in with Valdez, or may have witnessed his suspicious behavior in the Jensen Beach area to call the Martin County Sheriff’s Office at 772-220-7060.
He is currently being held at the Martin County Jail on a $750,000 bond.
