A Fife man has been put on the sex offenders register after secretly filming young girls at a Tesco supermarket over a period of more than a year.
Neil Ross also downloaded indecent images of girls as young as five.
Ross, 46, formerly of Humbie Terrace, Aberdour, now of Ogilvie Place, Tayport, appeared in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.
He admitted that on various occasions between May 19 2017 and July 4 2018 at Tesco, Calais Farm Road, Duloch, Dunfermline, he used his mobile phone to video record females and female children, focusing on their lower bodies, without their knowledge or consent and committed a breach of the peace.
He also admitted that between April 10 and August 1 2018 at his home in Aberdour, he downloaded indecent images of children.
Depute fiscal Kavin Ryan-Hume told the court police executed a search warrant at Ross’s home.
Other family members were there when the raid took place and Ross told officers: “I’ll save you a lot of time. It’s me you’re looking for.”
Defence solicitor Peter Robertson said: “There is no explanation to put forward at this time.”
Sheriff Charles MacNair called for reports and put Ross on the sex offenders register in the meantime.
He will return to court for sentencing on September 18.
