Male charged with video voyeurism

Two women who were trying on clothes at Rolling Hills Ministries on June 20 ended up talking to police authorities after they said a man was recording them with his phone.

Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s deputies arrived at Rolling Hills and talked to the two women, who said that when they began trying on clothes in the dressing room, they heard a noise that sounded like an iPhone starting a video recording. One of the women said after they heard the noise, she looked down and saw a pair of work boots in the adjoining stall.

While looking down at the bottom of the wall of the adjoining stall, she saw a phone with the camera side facing toward the inside of her stall. The phone was being held by the person in the adjoining booth. The woman said she and her friend immediately dressed and left the stall to find help.

When the women returned to the dressing room area, the man was no longer in the stall. A Rolling Hills employee helped them find the individual and escorted the man, later identified as Jose N. Mosqueda, of Farmerville, to ask him questions. 

The employee asked if he had videoed the girls, and Mosqueda said he had not. The employee asked to see Mosqueda’s phone, which he handed over and still denied videoing the women. One of the women asked him about the video, and he stated that he did video them. The woman who questioned Mosqueda said he offered them money not to say anything about the incident.

During this time, the women and the employee found videos of the incident in Mosqueda’s recently deleted video. 

Mosqueda was booked at Lincoln Parish Detention Center for two counts of video voyeurism.
