A vendor who works inside Fry's grocery stores admitted to secretly taking "thousands" of photos of women inside the store for "sexual purposes," police say.
According to court documents obtained by New Times, 32-year-old Timothy Millet is actually an employee of Nabisco but works inside Fry's stores around the Valley.
Millet was caught after he tried to take a video under a woman's dress at the Fry's on the corner of Warner Road and Cooper Road in Gilbert, but he accidentally touched the woman's leg with his phone, according to the documents.
Millet later told police he just told the woman he was sorry and walked away.
When the woman notified store management and got police involved, Millet admitted to "taking several photographs of random female customers," the documents state.
In this case, he said, he accidentally held the phone upside-down under the woman's dress, so he took a video of her feet and the floor. He deleted the video before police arrived.
However, police say Millet "admitted that he had a sexual addiction and has taken thousands of photos and videos of random women on his cell phone."
Police discovered "hundreds" of these photos and videos on his phone, from several different Fry's locations, according to the documents.
"This is consistent with Timothy's admission of taking thousands of photos," a police probable-cause statement says. "Timothy begins recording the females while inside the store and then follows them outside into the parking lot."

Most of the photos and videos "are focused on the buttocks" of the women, according to court documents.
The woman who finally caught Millet and told police was visibly upset and crying over the incident, according to the documents.
Millet was booked into jail on two felony counts of taking unlawful surreptitious photos.
