Police: Voyeur suspect ate memory card

LAKE MARY, Fla., Oct. 6 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said a man accused of using a hidden camera to videotape up a teenage girl's skirt allegedly swallowed the camera's memory card.

Seminole County sheriff's deputies said a mother shopping Friday night at a Target store near Lake Mary, Fla., saw a man, later identified as Gustavo Barretto, 41, following her 16-year-old daughter and moving his left foot toward her, the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel reported Tuesday.

The woman noticed the camera lens on Barretto's shoe and alerted managers. Deputies who met the suspect as he was leaving the store said he admitted trying to take pictures up the girl's skirt. However, the camera's memory card was missing and investigators said they believe Barretto swallowed it.

Deputies said they plan to subpoena X-rays of the suspect's stomach. They said a computer seized from Barretto's home had a video editing program that was loaded with images of under a girl's skirt.

Barretto was arrested and charged with video voyeurism and destroying evidence.
