RIDGELAND, MS (Mississippi News Now) - Ridgeland Police say an assistant manager at the Hollister store in Northpark mall is facing serious charges after allegedly violating the privacy of customers.  

Twenty-eight year-old Alance McKinney has been charged with unauthorized filming of a person.

Ridgeland police say they began their investigation when the parent of a minor said she witnessed McKinney using his cell phone to record video of her while she was changing clothes.

The witness said she saw his feet at the bottom of the curtain, then looked up and saw his hand holding his phone pointed at her. 

Lieutenant John Neal of the Ridgeland Police Department says,"There are wooden walls up... [but] It's an open top dressing room.  He would walk up, and from what we understand from the victim, he just stuck his phone over the top while she was undressing."

This is the only complaint that has been filed against McKinney at this time, but there could be more charges to come.

Police have confiscated a cell phone which they believe could contain evidence of other incidences.

Ridgeland police say Alance McKinney worked at the store for a couple of years. 

Today Hollisters parent company Abercrombie and Fitch released a statement saying, "We do not tolerate this type of behavior and the associate no longer works for the company."
