ST. TAMMANY PARISH, La. (WGNO) – (10/20/19) Officers with the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office (STPSO) arrested a Covington-area man after he photographed and videoed men in local restrooms.
Officers say 24-year-old Kyle Hanna was arrested Tuesday on a warrant for one count of video voyeurism, after a medical professional contacted the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office.
The medical professional was concerned after he says they say they learned Hanna was taking photos and videos of men using restrooms at St. Tammany-area businesses.
It does not appear the men knew they were being photographed and authorities say Hanna claimed he began taking the photos and videos in January 2019.
According to authorities, Hanna says he used the photos and videos for sexual gratification.
After obtaining a search warrant for Hanna’s phone, STPSO detectives learned that Hanna also took photos and videos of men in restrooms at locations throughout Tangipahoa Parish and the Pineville, LA area.
Law enforcement has been contacted in those jurisdictions.
Hanna was booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail.
This is an on-going investigation and additional charges are possible.
