Findley

A man suspected of using his cell phone to take private photos of a woman shopping in a Newnan store was arrested by Coweta County authorities Sunday morning.

Around 11:15 a.m. Coweta County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the Five Below store in Newnan Pavilion off Bullsboro Drive and took James Robert Findley, 36, into custody, said Lt. Col. Jimmy Yarbrough with the sheriff’s office.

Findley is suspected of using his cell phone to take inappropriate photos up a female shopper’s skirt, Yarbrough said.

The victim’s fiance caught Findley in the act and”popped” him, Yarbrough said, and the fiance held Findley down on the floor until authorities arrived.

Findley was charged with eavesdropping/ surveillance and was transported to the Coweta County Jail.
