Convicted Rhode Island offender accused of using drone to view woman in bathroom



A convicted sex offender is facing a disturbing charge after a woman reportedly found a drone spying on her in Rhode Island.

According to Major Todd Patalano, on Wednesday at approximately 11:00 p.m., the Cranston Police responded to a Midland Road address where a female stated that she noticed a drone peering in her bathroom window.

The unidentified female filed a report with officers stating she had just returned home from work and was in her bathroom preparing to use the shower. Her bathroom window was slightly open. She then heard a buzzing noise and went out in the backyard thinking it had something to do with her pool. Once in the backyard, she noticed a drone hovering outside of her bathroom window where she was preparing to take a shower. When she approached the drone, it moved quickly away from her to get away and hit a tree branch and fell to the ground. She quickly grabbed the drone before it took off and submerged it in her pool to disable it. She then called police to report the drone looking in her bathroom window.

On Friday, Officers and Detectives conducted a follow up investigation with the seized drone and was able to track it down to the operator identified as Christopher Jones who is a convicted sex offender.

Jones no longer has to register as a sex offender since his requirement ended in 2015.

Jones admitted he was the operator of the drone and was later arrested on Video Voyeurism charges. A person is guilty of video voyeurism when that person, for the purpose of sexual arousal, gratification or stimulation, looks into an occupied dwelling or other building by use of an imaging device that provides images of the interior of a dwelling.

Jones was charged with 1 count of Video Voyeurism, a felony, and is awaiting arraignment at Cranston Police headquarters.
