Trending: We rode along with Seattle PD to see how cops are busting drivers violating new distracted driving law

microsoftA Microsoft contractor has been charged with two counts of voyeurism on allegations that he captured 86 upskirt videos of 93 victimized women over the course of a year on the Microsoft campus. 

Police say that Leonard Raymundo, a 34-year-old Microsoft vendor employee, used a video camera to secretly film “female victim’s buttocks, groin area or underwear,” and “appeared to plan ahead and selected his filming locations carefully to ensure an abundance of potential victims.”

In her investigation, Redmond Police Officer Katelyn McGinnis notes that another Microsoft contractor noticed a Muvi USB video camera lying on the ground near the Microsoft Redwest buildings on July 24, 2013. He saw that the videos on the camera “were taken while pointed up women’s skirts or dresses,” and handed the device over to investigators two days later.

Surveillance video from that same day shows Raymundo following a woman, and returning minutes later appearing “nervous, frantically looking around,” before entering a Redwest building.

Investigators met with Raymundo on August 15 and he admitted to visiting upskirting websites and taking upskirting videos on the Microsoft campus. They later looked through Raymundo’s computer and found the 86 videos, while spotting Raymundo’s face nearly 50 times.

“In the videos, I noted that Raymundo employs the use of stairs, escalators or checkout lines as an excuse to be within close range of the female victims without arousing their suspicion,” McGinnis reported.

Court documents note that Raymundo had no previous criminal history but that “his actions filming unsuspecting female victims were prolific.” You can see the full charging documents here, courtesy of MyNorthwest.com.
