St. Albert man faces several charges, including voyeurism

James Whitford (36) of St. Albert will appear in court July 8 and 22.

St. Albert RCMP are investigating a man for multiple charges resulting from some suspicious person reports.

Police say just before midnight of May 26, they responded to a report of a suspicious Ford Explorer parked on the street in the Northridge neighbourhood.

Further investigation determined that the vehicle was stolen from the Lacombe Park neighbourhood in March of this year. Police work also resulted in the seizure of drugs, stolen property, and tools that could be used to commit break and enters.

James Whitford (36) of St. Albert was arrested.

RCMP say the man is also connected to multiple reports of a man looking into people’s homes through backyard windows. Police say the reports say Whitford was watching people and taking photos of them in various stages of undress, and also committed an indecent act while sitting in his vehicle in a public place on at least one occasion.

While it is alleged that this man had tools to break into vehicles, RCMP did not find any evidence that he has broken into any homes.

The 36-year-old is charged with an indecent act, theft and drug charges, and voyeurism charges, which he faces 31 counts.

He was released from police custody with several conditions including having a nightly curfew, not to have any contact with the victims of the voyeurism charges and not to be on any residential property without the permission of the property owner.

He is scheduled to appear in St. Albert Provincial Court on July 8 and again on July 22.
