Detectives with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office are looking for more victims of a man arrested for recording people in the bathroom of an Aloha restaurant.

According to the sheriff’s office, detectives began investigating 37-year-old Leighton Tilford Olson of Aloha after receiving reports of suspicious circumstances and found him in possession of thousands of stolen female undergarments.

After obtaining a search warrant for Olson’s home, deputies contacted Child Abuse detectives. The detectives determined Olson had been recording co-workers in the bathroom of the Little Caesar’s Pizza shop in Aloha, as well as visitors using the bathroom in his apartment.

A grand jury indicted Olson Friday on 5 counts of invasion of personal privacy, 4 counts of first-degree encouraging child sexual abuse, 4 counts of using a child in display of sexually explicit conduct, 2 counts of second-degree theft, and 1 count of burglary in the first degree.

Neighbors who wished to remain anonymous told KPTV his arrest isn’t surprising but the details behind the charges are.

"It makes me very sick to my stomach it makes me nauseous,” one neighbor said. “I didn't sleep when I first found out about it, it's disturbing it is very disturbing."

According to court records in February 2015, Olsen pled guilty to possession of meth and giving false information to a police officer.

Olson is being held in the Washington county Jail on $1,165,000.

Detectives said they believe that more victims are likely in the case.

"There are concerns that there are other victims out there,” Washington County Deputy Shannon Wilde said. “We do have recordings and photos of unidentified victims."

Anyone with information on this matter to contact Detective Tim Miller at 503-846-5613.
