An arrest has been made that Farmington Police Chief Jeff Jacobson said should clear up more than a dozen window peeping and trespassing incidents in Farmington, going back to last fall.
The chief said a Fruit Heights man was arrested May 3 after police, acting on descriptions supplied by victims, located and questioned the suspect. The man's identity has not been released, pending the formal filing of charges.Jacobson said eight counts of lewdness and three of criminal trespass, all misdemeanors, are being prepared and reviewed by the county attorney's office.
The department began receiving complaints of a window peeper last October, Jacobson said. The suspect's activities escalated and, in some cases, he entered homes and victims found him in their bedrooms at night, Jacobson said.
On questioning, the man admitted the incidents, Jacobson said. Police drove him around north Farmington residential areas and the chief said the suspect pointed out 16 homes he'd visited, admitting that he entered three.
Nothing was taken from the homes and no victims were physically harmed, the chief said, so the most the man can be charged with is criminal trespassing.
