A Revelstoke man has been charged with voyeurism after being caught by community centre staff allegedly trying to take pictures of people in the change room.

According to the Revelstoke RCMP, a community centre staff member was conducting their rounds when they saw a male who appeared to be using his cell phone to look under change room doors. They did not specify which change room the man was in.

“Obviously they run a pretty tight ship and they’re conducting rounds of the facility which is a very commendable thing,” said RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Dan Moskaluk.

The employee detained the male until the RCMP arrived. The man was arrested, and his cell phone seized. He has since been released on conditions, including not being allowed to visit the community centre.

The RCMP executed a search warrant on the man’s home on Jan. 9, and seized his home computer, which has been sent for forensic examination.

In light of the incident, the City of Revelstoke is working with the RCMP to review its security measures to ensure the comfort and safety of all community centre clients.

The 38-year-old Revelstoke man will make his first court appearance on Wednesday, Feb. 6.

The Revelstoke RCMP is asking anyone who has observed any suspicious behaviour at the community centre in the past few months to contact them at 250-837-5255.
