Joliet Police Pop Alleged Peeper

Timothy Zak allegedly set up a video camera to secretly record his teenage stepdaughter while she was naked, according to police reports.

A local man secretly filmed his teenage stepdaughter getting in and out of the shower, police said.

Timothy Zak, 45, was taken into custody Friday afternoon by sheriff's deputies and booked into the Will County jail.

Joliet police detectives worked up the case against Zak, who was reportedly living at 7004 Waterway Court on Joliet's far west side, but now resides at Johnstown Lane in Wheaton, according to jail records.

Police secured two felony charges of unlawfully videotaping a person younger than 18 against Zak nearly a month ago. A source said Zak has been traveling and staying in different counties for his job managing pizza restaurants and had proven hard to find, which is why he was only arrested Friday.

Even though Zak allegedly videotaped his underage stepdaughter when she was naked and without her knowledge, detectives could not go after a child pornography charge, police sources said. At 17, the girl was too old to substantiate a child pornography charge, one source said. And even though she was naked, she was not performing a sexual act when recorded, another police source said.

The warrant for Zak's arrest carries a $20,000 bond. He can get out of jail with $2,000 cash.

thats nothing, dupage county dismissed charges of DUI 12 years ago, reendited the guy a year later, never looked for him, some thug broke into his neighbors house and the guy chased him off, when the cops came, they ran his name, a father of three and a homeowner, found the warrant and arrested him...the bond was 500,000 cash to walk!!! although he had a non-violent past, mostly traffic, he never ran and lived in his own house with everything in his name!!!
