Man charged with eavesdropping in a public store

by Wes Mayer

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

Around 11:15 a.m., Coweta County deputies responded to the Five Below store off Bullsboro Drive and took James Robert Findley, 36, into custody, said Lt. Col. Jimmy Yarbrough with the Coweta County 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 apparently caught Findley in the act and ‘popped’ him, Yarbrough said, and the fiance was able to hold Findley down on the floor until authorities arrived. Findley was charged with eavesdropping or surveillance and was transported to the Coweta County Jail.
