ORLANDO, Fla. — A former Walt Disney World employee is facing a charge for surreptitiously taking a video up a customer’s skirt, allegedly telling investigators he had done so more than 500 times in the past six years.
Jorge Diaz Vega, 26, worked at the Star Wars gift shop inside Disney World’s Hollywood Studios theme park in Florida until his recent arrest on one count of video voyeurism, a third-degree felony punishable by up to five years from prison.
According to court records filed by Orange County sheriff’s detectives, a witness saw Vega filming an upskirt video of an 18-year-old woman. He later told security officers that he was unaware of Vega’s actions.
Detectives said Vega volunteered during questioning that he takes the videos as a «guilty pleasure» and showed them multiple examples on his cell phone.
He was arrested on March 31 and released on $2,500 bond. Court records do not show if Vega has an attorney and a current phone number could not be located.
Disney World said Sunday that Vega does not currently work for the company.
The sheriff’s office deferred until Monday to comment on whether investigators are filing more charges against Vega.
Both the sheriff’s office and Disney declined to say if they are working to identify the other women Vega allegedly took videos of.
