According to the New York State Police, 36-year-old Peekskill resident Jeremiah J. Jones was arrested May 17 for second-degree unlawful surveillance, a Class E felony.
Troopers were dispatched to Kohl’s on Main Street in Cortlandt for a suspicious male subject taking photos of a female patron. Loss Prevention reported that they observed Jones take a photo of a female customer wearing a skirt as she bent over to pick up an item from the floor.
Jones was identified and located later that day subsequent to an investigation. He was issued an appearance ticket to the Town of Cortlandt Justice Court on May 25.
Research shows that Jones is a registered sex offender, having been convicted in 2000 of first-degree sexual abuse: contact by forcible compulsion. His address is listed as Marion Avenue in Peekskill.
