LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) - Police say a man hid a camera in a large shopping bag so he could secretly record video up the skirts of women shopping at a Pennsylvania mall.

Thirty-two-year-old Joseph Leece, of East Petersburg, faces a preliminary hearing Tuesday on charges including stalking and possessing an instrument of crime.

Lancaster police say Leece used a large Gap shopping bag with a hole in the side so he could secretly take the pictures as he followed women around Park City Center, an upscale shopping mall.

An employee of a store notified authorities on Dec. 12, and police say they used surveillance video to determine he did the same thing twice before.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Leece who could comment on his behalf. He doesn’t have a listed phone.
