SPRINGDALE POLICE ARREST PEEPING TOM
SPRINGDALE, SC - Springdale Police Chief Kevin Cornett announces the arrest of a man accused of being a peeping tom.
Officers were conducting an operation, Operation Tommy Boy, on the 1100 block of Wattling Rd in an effort to catch a man that had repeatedly been seen peeping into windows of a house. The first incident report was in January of 2013, the second was in March of 2014 and the last was in May 2014 and were all at the same residence with similar suspect descriptions. Officers with the Springdale Police Department worked with the tenant, the landlord, local businesses and local residents to place a plainclothes officer in the residence as a new tenant while other officers watched the property waiting for the suspect to return.
The operation lasted a total of five days and during that time investigators were able to identify the possible suspect, but needed to catch him in the act to make a solid charge.
On Monday, June 30, 2014 at approximately 10:30 pm officers got that chance. While conducting surveillance on the residence officers observed 28 year old, Dennis K. Curry (B/M DOB: 8/1/1985) peeping into a bedroom window. Curry fled from officers on foot and resisted arrest, but was taken into custody in front of his residence across the street.
Curry was then interviewed by investigators and during that interview he waived his rights. Curry then provided the investigators with a verbal and written confession to each of the incidents that officers had reports for. He was transported to Lexington County Detention Center.
