FORT WAYNE/ INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Indiana's NewsCenter has just learned that Indianapolis Metro Police Officers are combing through 147 pieces of video clips that were recovered from David Delagrange's shoe camera to try and solidify their case against him.

Police say 40-year-old David DeLagrange used a sophisticated camera attached to his shoe to look up women's skirts and dresses and record them before he was caught at Indianapolis' Castleton Mall on Saturday night.

Officers were alerted when customers complained he was getting uncomfortably close to the victims.

Police had to use a taser on DeLagrange, when they say he resisted being arrested.

And Indianapolis police say DeLagrange "may" have tried the same thing here in northeast Indiana.

Indiana's NewsCenter has also learned that investigators searched his home on Fort Wayne's southwest side and recovered computers and hard drives containing adult pornography, as well as u-s-b flash drives and blank cd's and dvd's.

However, Investigators say their main task is to look at all 147 video clips recovered from Delagrange's shoe camera -- and match them with the clothing that probable adult and teenage victims were wearing during Saturday's incident at Castleton Mall in Indianapolis.

"We have to match up the victims who have come forward and said I think he videotaped me to actual images or photos or videos that he had on his camera. (By) matching those up and that will substantiate any formal charges we file tomorrow morning," said Indianapolis Metro Police Detective Michael Schollmeier.

Meanwhile, Fort Wayne Police are asking women to come forward if they think they've been victimized by a Summit City man, arrested over the weekend in Indianapolis for voyeurism.

Office Raquel Foster says, "Just be aware of your surroundings and when a stranger does approach pay attention to their hands and in this case you would want to pay attention to their shoes as well. Because we don't know why they would be approaching you."

DeLagrange has been charged with voyeurism, resisting arrest and felony child exploitation, because one of the victims at the mall was a teenager.

If convicted, DeLagrange faces up to 8 years in prison.

Meanwhile, Investigators are interviewing four more teenagers all between the ages of 14 and 16. If those charges are added, Delagrange will face four felonies.

Each count would be a Class B felony that could land Delagrange in jail for up to 20 years per crime.

Indiana's NewsCenter has also uncovered that the 40-year old suspect runs an online electronics store from his home on Fort Wayne's southwest side.

If you recognize him, police ask you to call CrimeStoppers at 436-STOP.
