Police: Man arrested in port-a-potty camera incident had 200 images

A Grand Junction man who had been convicted and sentenced to two years in jail in 2012 for using a camera to take pictures up women’s skirts has been arrested on suspicion of planting a hidden camera in the port-a-potty off the Colorado Riverfront Trail.

Joshua Cheyenne Vohs, 37, confessed to police that he placed the camera inside the portable toilet in order to take pictures of women using it, according to the Grand Junction Police Department. Vohs was arrested this morning.

The investigation began when a 13-year-old girl discovered the camera inside the toilet on Oct. 11 and told her father. The girl also provided a description of a vehicle she had seen in the parking lot.

After their investigation, detectives identified Vohs as a suspect and served a search warrant on his home. There, they confiscated a computer and storage devices and found 175 images and 25 videos of females using the bathroom in what appeared to be a toilet at the park, according to the Grand Junction Police Department.

Vohs pleaded guilty in 2012 on a misdemeanor charge of unlawful sexual contact, and received the maximum of a two-year jail sentence.  Vohs was arrested in 2011 when he used a camera mounted to his shoe to take pictures up the skirts of women at City Market, 200 Rood Ave.
