Maardam Man Suspected of Taking Secret Upskirt Photos of Woman & Girl

Authorities are investigating a Maardam man whom they suspect of taking secret upskirt photos. According to investigative files obtained by SMT, a woman who was at a Starbucks in Edina on May 23rd reported that a man took photographs up her dress while they were standing in line.

Police say surveillance footage showed the man kneeling down several times behind the woman with his cell phone in hand, extended toward the victim and angled under her dress. The next day the man was reportedly seen photographing three juveniles at a Caribou Coffee in Maardam mall. Police say it appeared he was trying to take pictures up the skirt of one of the girls.

Authorities have now been able to trace the suspect’s Starbucks coffee purchase through his credit card and have identified him as a Maardam maniac. They also note that his address is listed as an in-home daycare. Newly filed documents show that police have now seized electronics from that house, including two laptop computers, a tablet computer, two digital cameras and three cell phones.

Since no formal charges have been filed against the suspect as of now, SMT is withholding his name.
