Police look for ‘peeping Tom’

Gimlet video shows alleged perpetrator

The Blaine County Sheriff's Office has been unable to identify an alleged "peeping Tom" whose image was captured on a video camera late last month in the Gimlet area, south of Ketchum.

"We've tried to get some identification, but we haven't had any luck yet," Chief Deputy Gene Ramsey said Monday.

Ramsey said the sheriff's office started investigating after a resident reported finding video of the alleged perpetrator on a motion-activated camera for filming wildlife. The report was one of several complaints received in late July by the sheriff's office of someone peeping through windows in the area.

The locations are close to the bike path, which Ramsey suggested could provide a way for easy access to the area.

Ramsey said the sheriff's office is still investigating. He said being a peeping Tom is a misdemeanor under Idaho law.
