— Police have charged a Raleigh man with secretly taking pictures of women in their underwear at a local Walmart store.

Phillip Allen Pettit, 35, of 10210 Purchase Crossing, Apt. 208, was arrested Monday on eight counts of felony secret peeping. Police said he was using a cell phone to take pictures and record videos of women at the Walmart in the Alexander Place shopping center on Glenwood Avenue.

Eight videos were found on a cell phone seized in the case, and police searched Pettit's home Tuesday to check his computers and any other electronic devices for any other photos or videos, according to a search warrant.

Investigators said Wednesday that there might be more victims and asked that any women who might have encountered Pettit in the store come forward.
