A San Rafael man is suspected of using a camera concealed in his sandal to take videos under the skirts of as many as 35 women in Fairfax, according to police. Nick Charles Springer, 26, was arrested Wednesday evening for misdemeanor disorderly conduct and a felony charge of violating his probation for theft, Fairfax Police Chief Christopher Morin said. Someone saw Springer allegedly using the camera at the Fairfax Farmers Market, Morin said. The market’s manager was notified, police were called and an officer caught Springer in the act, Morin said. The camera is about the size of a credit card, but thicker, Morin said. Springer concealed it inside his open-toe sandal, Morin said. The Fairfax police officer saw Springer allegedly maneuver next to a woman and place his foot next to and in between her legs, Morin said. When questioned, Springer admitted the offense, Morin said. The camera contained videos of as many as 35 female victims Morin said. The videos were taken at the Fairfax Farmers Market, the Good Earth Market on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard and Fairfax Coffee Roasters on Bolinas Road, Morin said. The Marin County Sheriff’s Office reported a similar case within the past month at the Marin County Farmers Market, Morin said. The sheriff’s office had a photo of the suspect whose identity was unknown until Springer was arrested, Morin said. None of the alleged victims were aware of what was happening, Morin said. Springer was booked into Marin County Jail on $602 bail and was scheduled to be arraigned this afternoon.
