The surveillance footage showed him putting his cell phone in a shopping basket, then walking up behind women and positioning the basket so it would point up their skirts. Other footage showed the car he was driving, which helped lead officers to catching him.

Krystofalski was charged him with voyeuristic recording of antoher person and breach of peace. He was released on a $20,000 bond and is due in court September 17.
