NEWPORT NEWS, VA - A Newport News man is banned from the beach for what can best be described as being a habitual creeper, the CBS affiliate in the area reports.
 
Sheriff's deputies received complaints, some from juvenile girls, about the man taking photos of females in bathing suits.

Taylor Dibble was with his girlfriend at the beach in Yorktown, when a man in the bushes started taking photos of her as she was sunning in a bikini, WTKR-TV reports.

“He had a big ol’ lens and you know he’d zoom way close, and it was pretty creepy you know?” Dibble said.

“Use your computer, stay at home, don’t come out here in public and be rude like that.”

“First I was kinda giving him the benefit of the doubt like maybe he’s sight seeing or something like that, but then I was like, the lens is down a little too far and it aimed like, he was getting behind girls so he’d get their butts and stuff,” said Miranda Joy.

That happened Thursday and police say he was back Saturday, and that’s when people called them to put a stop to it.

The York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office received complaints about the same middle-aged man in 2012 and 2013, WAVY-TV reported.

“It’s three years that he’s been doing this, and our people don’t feel comfortable so our deputy banned him from the waterfront, and our bans are typically for a year,” said Lt. Dennis Ivey with the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office.

The man wouldn’t show deputies any of the photos he had taken. The 51-year-old is banned from the beach.

His name isn’t being released because he wasn’t arrested.

County law allows the sheriff to restrict anyone from public land without doing anything illegal. But, if he comes back, he’ll be charged with trespassing.
