TARGET STORES continue to attract predators.
New Jersey Police say they have arrested an Ocean Grove man for using a mirror to inappropriately check out women at a Target store. The accused is 56-year-old Julius G. Reynolds. He has been charged with invasion of privacy after Target department store workers said they saw him placing a basket with a mirror attached to it on the floor next to female shoppers and using the mirror to look up the dresses and skirts of unsuspecting female shoppers.
Reynolds was arrested on May 16 and is being held at Monmouth County Correctional Institution on a $7,500 bail.
Reynolds has a history of criminal activity. In 2007 he was caught using his cell phone to take inappropriate photos of women in public. He was later given a three-year sentence on the charge and placed on the NJ sex offender registry. He’s also been bagged for credit card fraud, drug offenses, and one conviction of child endangerment on his record.
Had Reynolds identified himself as a woman at the Target store, nothing could be done to stop him from entering the ladies bathroom or changing room.
