I live right around the corner, and have gone in Hip Chic many times. That guy has always given me the creeps. I never could quite put my finger on what the problem was with him. It wasn't like he flirted in a friendly way, but rather he just gave you the creeps. In fact, I basically stopped going in there because of him. It was a cute store, but I'm sure they'll be forced to go out of business. Nobody that I know would ever go in there or allow their daughters to go back in. Just seeing his photo on the Internet gives me the heeby jeebies!

My daughter and I have shopped at Hip Chic and Funkey Monkey quite a few times, and agree that it was hard to put a finger on Jay's behavior. He liked to gossip about his clients, he followed you around in the store and talked too much, and was basically just very annoying. My creep meter didn't register, and now I regret that it didn't. I did think he was a person with a bad attitude toward certain people who had crossed him, he was paranoid that everyone was stealing from him, and he was quite nosy about everyone's business. I've seen him behave rudely toward customers but never toward me. I like his wife very much -- she is sweet and unassuming, so I wondered what she saw in him. If I find out that this guy taped my daughter at any time, I will be sure that charges are pressed. I think this revelation is going to be the tip of an iceberg, because he had some fancy surveillance equipment and didn't need a camcorder to spy on people. I hope the police have thoroughly searched his business and home for more evidence.

I live in the same neighborhood and in close proximity to this creep. Everyone knew there was something fishy about him, he even shined a spot light on my car one evening and would not take the light off until I pulled up in my driveway. This guy is a piece of garbage and should lose his business license and go to jail!

I live in the same neighborhood as well and we have a serious problem with speeders. I bet "Louis" is one of them and was driving too fast when kids and pets were out. We've had one dog hit already. He's lucky he didn't get a shotgun pointed at him and only a flashlight. Slow it down bubba.

I own a business in the area and hate to hear about things like this going on in my community. The legal system should take care of him on this issue and we as a community can hopefully keep him from operating a business here again.

Wow it sounds like this is actually him responding to "Louis"... I would watch out, he sounds like the crazy stalker demented type. I would be worried to have my children living in the same neighborhood as him. He is even making threats online to people because he cant handle his own guilt! I hope he is prosecuted to the fullest extent. this dirt bag peeping tom is probably a pedophile too by the sounds of it. Check out his picture too at the top of the article, he even looks like a low life criminal.

Has anyone heard what happened in this case? I hear this man and his wife own several other similar stores. Im shocked they are still in business.
