Deputies search for man accused of voyeurism at Tampa Publix

TAMPA — Sheriff's deputies are searching for a man accused of inappropriately filming a teenage girl at a Tampa Publix, using a camera hidden in his grocery basket.

A man entered the Publix at 8701 W Hillsborough Avenue at 2:41 p.m. Saturday and placed a cell phone in his basket, the Sheriff's Office said.

He then walked up behind a 16-year-old girl and placed the basket beneath her skirt, the Sheriff's Office reported.

The girl's mother noticed that and intervened, but the man ran out of the store and has not been caught.

Deputies describe him as a white male, between 18 and 21 years old, between 5-foot-9 and 6 feet, and 170 to 200 pounds. He has long, curly black hair, tattoos on both forearms and was wearing a black T-shirt with a band's logo on the front and long khaki shorts.

The Sheriff's Office asks anyone with information to call (813) 247-8200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-TIPS (8477).
