Employee At Walmart Accused Of Videotaping 9-Year-Old Boy Using Bathroom
A Columbus man was charged with pandering obscenity involving a minor after he allegedly took pictures of a 9-year-old boy using a bathroom stall on Monday.
Okey Belcher, a 9-year employee of Walmart, located at 1693 Stringtown Rd., was taken into custody and charged, according to police.
The child's father told police that he took his son to the restroom at Walmart and put him in a stall.
About five minutes later, the father said his son came out of the restroom and told him that the person in the next stall was holding his phone under stall and videotaping him.
According to the report, the boy said he saw the phone and went out to tell his father, who then called the police.
Belcher denied videotaping him and said he dropped his phone and picked it back up, the report stated.
Officers confiscated his cell phone and iPod, police said.
According to Walmart officials, Belcher, who is the manager of Loss Prevention at the Walmart, was suspended without pay and would be fired if the accusations are substantiated.
Belcher's bond was set at $100,000.
