Police: Convicted peeper charged for more peeping at ECU locker rooms

GREENVILLE, PITT COUNTY - Police said a Pitt County man, already convicted of peeping in Wake County, has been arrested for allegedly recording video inside ECU locker rooms.

LaDarryl Strong, 34, of Ayden, turned himself in on Tuesday and has been charged with three felony counts of secret peeping, investigators said. The charges can bring up to six years in prison.

According to Lt. Chris Sutton of ECU Police, Strong recorded video inside the school's football and two other male locker rooms from January to June 2006. ECU Police said they were notified of the videos in November 2012.

Investigators said when they searched Strong's Ayden home, they found footage that was shot in a locked room with purple and gold colors. But because much of ECU's athletic facilities have been renovated, it was difficult to confirm if the recording was shot inside Pirates locker rooms, said Lt. Sutton.

ECU Police combed through more than 400 video files before arresting Strong, Lt. Sutton added.

Strong did not attend ECU and has never worked there, according to the university.

The suspect was released from the Pitt County Detention Center on a $10,000 bond. His next court hearing is scheduled for October 10.

Strong was previously sentenced to three years of probation for video-recording the inside of a Carolina Mudcats locker room at Five County Stadium in Zebulon. Strong was posing as a building services worker at the time, investigators said. But Mudcats employees grew suspicious and confronted Strong, leading to his arrest in April 2012.

Officers said they seized 20 computers and other devices from Strong's home after that incident.

The suspect had once worked for Lenoir County Schools.
