LYMAN — Ryan Flaten, 27, was arrested Nov. 17 on the charge of felony voyeurism by the Lyman Police Department, after an investigation conducted by Lyman Police Chief Tom Clark.
Maverik Store employees contacted Clark after a hidden video camera was located, which had been placed in the public restroom at the store. When Clark arrived at the store and met with the two of the store’s employees, he was informed a “GoPro” camera had been placed inside of a box and placed on top of boxes of cleaning supplies inside the public restroom.
Clark was provided with surveillance footage of the store a given a description of a suspicious individual who had entered the store earlier. This individual was a regular customer of the store. Clark and the store employees reviewed the video surveillance from the store and obtained footage showing the individual at the store, and a video of his vehicle.
Local law enforcement officers were informed of the case and asked for assistance in locating the suspect and his vehicle.
“Law Enforcement takes a team effort to successfully bring suspects to justice,” Clark said about the voyeurism incident, which resulted in Flaten’s arrest.
The success of this case was initiated with very observant Maverik employees and local Bridger Valley Law Enforcement, according to Clark.
