The manager of a Lincoln restaurant is behind bars after police say he videotaped female employees changing clothes.
Twenty-nine-year–old Dustin Lindgren was arrested Monday evening for Felony Unlawful Intrusion. Police say the manager of the Tilted Kilt was filming female employees on his cell phone while they changed in the women's locker room.
"The first incident was discovered last week when a woman was changing," Officer Katie Flood said. "She saw a cell phone peeking out of a jacket hanging nearby."
Police say the woman recognized it as her manager's phone, but didn't think much of it at the time and gave it back to him. Then Monday night, the same thing happened with a different employee. Police say she confronted Lindgren and called police later that night.
"We have seized his phone and laptop and it's possible that there are other victims."
Officials say they did find evidence on those devices but don't believe he shared the videos.
In this case, he was charged with two counts of Felony Unlawful Intrusion. It's a state statute that protects people when they are in a situation with expected privacy, such as changing in a dressing room or undressing at a tanning salon.
"If someone peaks over the side of the dressing room and just sees it with their eyes, it's a misdemeanor," Officer Flood said. "However, if you take steps to either photograph or video record what you see in those dressing rooms then it becomes a felony."
We reached out to Tilted Kilt's Corporate Office for a statement but did not receive an e–mail back.
