“The people at Tan and Laundry were very helpful,” Knowles said. “They were able to give us the names of the people who would have been in the tanning beds that matched up with the time stamps on the photos.”
Knowles then worked with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department to serve a search warrant on his home in Marion County.
“We were able to take laptops, computers, and several DVDs from the home,” Knowles said. “He lived in Marion County at the time but I have been told he now lives in Mooresville.”
Simmons has been charged with two counts of voyeurism and one count of child pornography.
The Martinsville Police Department is now working with the four victims found at the other tanning salon.
Knowles said it was very difficult to approach other victims.
“It’s just horrible,” he said. “These people are traumatized. I’m glad (Britney) saw him and did something about it or this could still be going on. She stopped a bad situation.”
Britney said she was glad she was able to help.
“I’m also glad the police didn’t just brush it off or think it was not a big deal,” she said. “They’ve been keeping in contact with me and have been very helpful.”
