FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — A man who allegedly traveled around Arizona pretending to be a hair dresser so he could take sexually explicit photos of his clients has been apprehended.
The U.S. Marshals Service says a task force arrested 53-year-old James Hickey on Friday while he was bike-riding in Flagstaff.
Hickey is wanted on 14 counts of surreptitious videotaping as well as charges of voyeurism and probation violation.
Authorities say Hickey would approach homes and apartment complexes and pose as a hair dresser looking for in-home work.
