But the image he allegedly took of himself setting up the device probably didn't give him much of a thrill -- since it led directly to his arrest.
Cops were alerted shortly thereafter, and upon examining the video on the device, they discovered footage from which they grabbed this image:Creepy? Why, yes.
Last week, the Greeley police shared this pic with the Greeley Tribune, among other area outlets. The suspect they busted a few days later didn't turn out to be a local, however. West lives in Des Moines, where he was arrested by Iowa police working in conjunction with the Greeley department.
The charges: sexual exploitation of children and three counts of invasion of privacy for sexual gratification, totaling two felonies and two misdemeanors.
What was West doing in Colorado? Police believe he was traveling around the country to different "arts and crafts" sites...with his family.
West, by the way, has an active Twitter account that identifies him as "Vice President at Managed Print Services Association. Personal Productivity Engineer at Nationwide Insurance." Here's his Twitter profile pic.The account also features an interesting tweet, dated July 22:
Last day in Salem, OR. Will miss the perfect pacific NW weather! 2500 mile journey home starts tomorrow w/ stop in Denver for some work— Justin Robert West (@JustinRWest) July 23, 2012
Just what that work entailed may help determine whether West winds up in a Greeley jail or returns to life as it was before his recent arrest. Here's his mug shot.
