An Evansville man is arrested on voyeurism charges.

Evansville Police say 39-year-old Steven Michael Sandleben was arrested on 3 counts of Voyeurism and drug charges. 

Police say in August officers responded to a complaint at the Goodwill Store at 4660 W. Lloyd Expressway. The 911 caller told police Sandleben had video taped her 4 year old daughter, including video taping up her skirt. 

Investigators went to Sandleben's house and questioned him about what happened, but say there not enough evidence to make an immediate arrest, the investigation continued.

Police say a search warrant was obtained for his apartment and computers and camera equipment was seized.

While examining the electronics, EPD says multiple videos were found of women showing their buttocks and vaginal ares. Police say none of the victims appeared to be aware they were being taped.

Police say the videos were taken in different locations around the Evansville area and say the victims included juveniles and adults.

EPD says Sandleben was arrested earlier this year in May 11 for taping a 14-year-old girl at an east side store and was out on $500 bond when the August investigation began.

Sandleben is now in the Vanderburgh County Jail on $25,000 bond. 

Sandleben is charged with 2 counts of Felony Voyeurism, 1 count of Misdemeanor Voyeurism, 1 count of Misdemeanor Possession of Marijuana, and 1 count of Misdemeanor Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
