Peeping Tom behind bars again in New Hanover County
Johnny Wayne Alford of Pender County was arrested Sunday evening for secretly spying on college-aged girls in Wrightsville Beach.
Police say a witness spotted Alford naked in a carport on North Lumina Ave. and called police. When investigators arrived, the suspect was already gone, but left his car keys, clothes and a video camera.
Police located the car a couple of blocks away, and tracked down Alford on a stolen bicycle. He was also arrested for peeping in 2003.
“Females in the Wrightsville Beach area who feel they may have been victimized – again keeping in mind, college-aged, Wrightsville Beach area, probably a first floor apartment. If you’ve heard suspicious sounds outside of your apartment and you’re not really sure, you can contact me at the Wrightsville Beach Police Department, and I’ll see if you’re one of the victims,” said Wrightsville Beach investigator Shaun Appler.
The number to call is 256-7911.
Alford faces a variety of charges, including three counts of secret peeping. He is in the New Hanover County jail under a $1.25 million bond.
A Wrightsville Beach peeping Tom is peering out from behind bars Tuesday night. So far, detectives have identified nine victims and say there are more.
