ATHENS, Ga. -

Police in Athens are searching for a man accused of using his camera to take a picture up a woman's skirt. Authorities believe this isn't the first time he snapped a picture like that.

According to authorities, the man was inside the Athens Walmart watching a female employee. When she stepped on a crate to get something, he pulled out his camera.

"He walked back and stuck the camera up under her skirt and took a picture," said Capt. Clarence Holeman of the Athens-Clarke County Police Department.

Police say other employees noticed the flash and confronted the man, who then left the store.

The suspect is believed to be driving a white Honda Accord or a Toyota Camry.  Authorities are confident that this man has taken other lewd photos and they want to track him down before he comes into contact with other unsuspecting women.

"Our job is to try to get him off the streets so they can shop in peace whether they're wearing pants or a skirt," said Holeman.

Police say when they catch the man, he will be charged as a Peeping Tom, which is a felony.
