Greenville, N.C. — A worker at an Old Navy store in Greenville has been charged with peeping at dozens of customers in the store's changing rooms, police said.
Calvin Lee Johnson Jr., 31, of 2564 Nash Joyner Road in Farmville, has been charged with 115 counts of felonious secret peeping. He was being held in the Pitt County Jail on a $110,000 bond.
A 24-year-old woman complained to the managers of the Old Navy at 530 SE Greenville Blvd. two weeks ago that she saw someone trying to videotape or photograph her under the door while she was in a store dressing room, police said. Corporate security helped identify a store employee as a suspect.
Police recovered digital images of about 53 women – none can be identified – taken on Jan. 29 and 31 and Feb. 1, 4, 5, 7, 11, 12 and 14.
Old Navy issued a statement saying company officials were "deeply troubled" by the incident. Johnson, who has been fired, was screened before he was hired, but a background check turned up no previous criminal record, the statement said.
"Our top priority is ensuring Old Navy customers feel safe and comfortable in our stores," the statement said.
Any woman who believes she might have been photographed in the Old Navy changing rooms is asked to call the Greenville Police Department at 252-329-4134. Officers will return the messages.
