Pinellas Park man arrested on voyeurism charges

Posted: Updated:
PINELLAS PARK (FOX 13) -

Most of 50-year-old James Kelley's neighbors didn't know much about him, saying he kept to himself.

"He had a dog, he liked NASCAR, that's all I knew," said Rebecca Schaus, a neighbor.

Kelley was arrested Wednesday morning.

"You feel so safe in your home, you start searching in your mind, ‘did I close my drapes enough?' " said neighbor Sharon Wilkerson.

Police were called to James Kelley's home on 94th Terrace North, after a neighbor reported seeing him with a video camera taping her getting dressed in her bedroom.

Officials say Kelley had at least six videos of the woman naked in her home -- one of which included her boyfriend.

Police say he admitted the shooting had been going on for months.

"He'd have to use some type of optical zoom to get as close as he did in the video we viewed," said Pinellas Park Police Sgt. Adam Geissenberger.

Rebecca Schaus lives directly next door to Kelley, and she says she can't believe what was apparently going on just doors away.

"It is hard to understand why someone does that. There's free stuff on the internet," she said.

Kelley was charged with video voyeurism, and more charges could be on the way.
