Police: Man upskirted young children at stores


A store employee caught videotaping up the dresses and skirts of young girls admitted he secretly recorded other children and women at stores across Lebanon County, police said.

State police in Jonestown say Darun Ferguson had been making videos of unsuspecting women and children since early March.

Ferguson, 39, of Lebanon, was an employee of the Dollar General in Jonestown when he was caught surreptitiously videotaping two children in the store on Aug. 12. He was interviewed and admitted to making the recording and others, police said in a news release.

Investigators then seized his computers and storage devices and found 50 images of child pornography dating back to 2009, police said.

Ferguson was charged with 50 felony counts of possession of child pornography and six counts of invasion of privacy.

He was arraigned Thursday and placed in the Lebanon County Correctional Facility on $100,000 bail. A booking photo was not immediately available.

Police said anyone who believes they may be a victim should call the Jonestown station at 717-865-2194.
