A man who allegedly traveled around Arizona pretending to be a hair dresser so he could take sexually explicit photos of his clients has been apprehended. The US Marshals Service says a task force arrested 53-year-old James Hickey on Friday while he was bike-riding in Flagstaff. Hickey is wanted on 14 counts of surreptitious videotaping as well as charges of voyeurism and probation violation. Authorities say Hickey would approach homes and apartment complexes and pose as a hair dresser looking for in-home work.

While cutting people's hair, he allegedly secretly recorded or took sexually graphic pictures. He also allegedly shot so-called "upskirt photos" of women at a Phoenix Hobby Lobby, KPHO reports. He is suspected of offenses in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Flagstaff, and Huntington Beach, California, and has a criminal history including resisting arrest, assault, and criminal assault. Hickey previously served time for burglary and unlawful recording and videotaping. It isn't known whether he has an attorney. (Read more sexually explicit stories.)
