PHOENIX - Phoenix police have arrested a woman suspected of videotaping and photographing women in public restrooms throughout the Valley.
On Thursday, 37-year-old Laura L. Laibe was arrested in Surprise for videotaping and photographing women and then selling the images on the internet, according to Phoenix police Sgt. Trent Crump.
Police say it happened between May 17, 2012 and September 20th of this year.
While many of the victims' identities remain unknown, officials are aware the locations of the crimes involve several large venues such as Chase Field, University of Phoenix Stadium, the Rainforest Cafe, Sky Harbor Airport and local Walmart stores.
Police say some of the victims were children.
ABC15 spoke with several women headed to the Coyotes hockey game who were disturbed to hear something like this had happened at other sports venues.
"You know you stand in line and you think you're all there to do the same thing-- but you've got someone there who's there for the wrong reason," said Rosanne Eklund.
"I mean we're not safe anywhere. In a bathroom stall, anywhere," she said.
Many women said it's something they'll think about next time they step foot in a public restroom.
"I'll definitely be on the lookout," said Alex Moutinho. "I'll search it more than I do. It'll take forever to go to the bathroom now, and I don't even want to go to the bathroom now."
Investigators are asking anyone who may have had contact with Laibe or encountered her while in a restroom facility to contact the Family Investigations Unit at 602-534-2121.
They're also specifically looking for anyone who may have come into contact with her in the bathroom at a Diamondbacks game on or near April 13th and September 13th of this year.
Laibe is being booked on 38 counts of voyeurism.
