A Solano County man has reportedly been arrested in connection with multiple alleged incidents of illegal peeping.
According to a press release by the Vacaville Police Department, the man, identified as 53-year-old Corey Harvey, was arrested on the 400 block of Kentucky Street shortly after 7 AM on August 2. Harvey reportedly faces four charges of peeping into an inhabited dwelling, under California penal code 647(i).
The initial investigation began after a resident contacted the Vacaville Police Department on July 23 of this year, alleging that a man had been peering into her residence on West Street during the early morning hours.
Another resident contacted the police department later that same day, reporting that he had seen social media posts regarding a man seemingly peeping into windows near his neighborhood on Peach Tree Avenue. The caller suspected that this individual was responsible for an incident he had reported back in May of this year, police said.
Based on obtained video surveillance and gathered information, detectives identified the suspect as Harvey.
The detectives reportedly were already aware of at least three previous instances of alleged peeping involving a man matching Harvey’s description. These incidents had occurred within close proximity to the Kentucky Street area over the past year.
Investigators obtained a search warrant for Harvey’s residence, and took Harvey into custody during the execution of the warrant. He was booked at the Solano County jail. The case has since been forwarded to the Solano County District Attorney’s Office for review and potential charges.
Individuals who may have witnessed these incidents or believe they could be victims are encouraged to reach out to Detective Santoni at (707) 469-4812.
It was unclear at press time whether Harvey had retained an attorney. All suspects arrested on suspicion of a crime are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
