From Massachusetts State Police:

Last Thursday Trooper Kevin Bates, who is assigned to State Police-Nantucket, was approached by three women who reported they had witnesses a man take an “upskirt” photo of a woman on Federal Street in Nantucket. The women had obtained video and photographic images of the suspect.  The images where shared with the Nantucket Police Department in an attempt to locate the suspect.

Later that evening Trooper Bates observed the suspect waiting tables at a local restaurant.  Trooper Bates, along with Trooper Jacob Raposo, met a 30-year-old man from Nantucket. After an investigation which included viewing pictures taken by the suspect, the Troopers placed him under arrest.

The suspect is charged with committing illegal electronic surveillance or video of a nude or partially nude person.

Troopers continued their investigation today to determine the scope of the suspect’s crimes. The suspect was sent to a hospital for evaluation after making statements suggesting he posed a threat to his own safety. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
