Duncan man charged in peeping Tom incident

A valley man made his first provincial court appearance on five voyeurism-related charges yesterday at the Duncan Law Courts.

Timothy Michael Deobat Poilievre, a Duncan resident in his early 50s, is charged with four counts of secretly observing/recording nudity in a private place, and one count of making available or possessing voyeuristic recordings.

The charges stem from alleged offences that occurred in Duncan during a period of about six months this year.

“The complaint against (Poilievre) was made in July of this year, and Poilievre was arrested the same day the complaint was received (by police) at his place of employment in Ladysmith,” Const. Markus Lueder, spokesman at the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP detachment, said in an email to the News Leader Pictorial on Tuesday.

Charges were laid on Aug. 12, and Poilievre is currently not in police custody.
