So, that day, the deputies sent an undercover officer into the store wearing a skirt. Deputies said Barclay couldn’t resist indulging in her seedy video voyeurism by following her around the store, a behavior known as ‘upskirting’.

He then crouched down and appeared to be using his smartphone to try to capture videos or photos under her dress without her knowledge or consent.
