A Boulder couple captured a man they said was trying to videotape them through a window of their home, which led police to a trove of evidence against the accused neighborhood peeping tom.
Police made that evidence public today to track down other victims whom Wesley Cox, 44, may have videotaped nude, in addition to stealing underwear and personal garments from their homes.
Police found Cox pinned to the ground by his neighbors in the 1500 block of 48th Street on Oct. 31.
The couple told police they stopped him from erasing his video camera, after catching him spying on them.
Boulder police said that camera included nude images of other women who have not been identified.
A search warrant of his home yielded scores of
women's underwear and garments allegedly stolen by Cox, police said, including a size small Boulder High School cheerleader's uniform, a pair of black knit shorts worn by a Hooters restaurant waitress, a bikini and dirty socks.
A police statement said "it appears that Cox broke into women's homes, stole their belongings and then became obsessed with the victims."
Police said Cox preyed on women living within a 2-mile radius of his home at 1505 48th St. in Boulder.
Photos of the missing items are available on the police website at www.bouldercolorado.gov/police/prowler/.
