A man who identifies as a transgender female has been arrested for allegedly taking photos of a woman while she was in a department store changing room.

According to a Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office news release, deputies responded to the Target store in Ammon where “an adult female reported a subject taking pictures of her while she was inside a changing room trying on clothes. The victim noticed the subject reaching over the wall of the changing room with a cell phone taking pictures. The victim confronted the subject who then fled the store on foot.”

“Detectives were able to review witness information and security footage from Target that led them to come in contact with 43-year-old Sean Patrick Smith, who also identifies as Shauna Patricia Smith a transgender female,” the release went on.

After interviewing Smith, she was taken into custody by detectives and booked into the Bonneville County Jail for one felony count of voyeurism.

Detectives are still investigating to determine if any more victims exist relating to the incident, the release stated.
