Sorority house peeper busted at USF

Tampa, Florida -- Earlier this month, during a routine patrol of the Greek Village complex on the USF Tampa campus, USF officers noticed something unusual.

They watched a man walk into an unlit area beside the Kappa Delta sorority house, crouch down and peer into a lower window. The officers confronted him and he said his name was Francis Patrick Nelson.

The suspect explained to the officers that he was looking for someone, but could only provide a first name, and no last name or other contact information.

He had no viable address, was unable to dispel the officers concerns and was arrested for the charge of Loitering or Prowling. He was transported to the Hillsborough County Central Booking facilities, where he remained on a $250 bond.

While the suspect was in jail, USF investigators worked to find his real identity. A week later, fingerprint test results revealed that the person arrested was not Francis Patrick Nelson, but instead was Jeremy Steven Cary, 27, an absconded sexual predator from Knox County, Illinois.

Carey now faces an additional charge of Obstructing/Opposing an Officer through providing a false name to law enforcement officers. He is currently being held in Hillsborough County Jail awaiting extradition by U. S. Marshals.
