An Auburn woman arrested in May for videotaping her neighbor has been arrested again.
Barbara Jean Waldroup, 59, of 82 Hilltop Circle, was arrested May 17 and charged with three counts of stalking for repeatedly videotaping her neighbor.
The victim said the videotaping was part of ongoing harassment and intimidation by Waldroup. According to the victim, Waldroup has been stalking her for four years. Police have been called to the residence several times in the past regarding the continuing dispute. Earlier this year, police cited Waldroup for disorderly conduct in connection with an April dispute over the ongoing video surveillance.
Last week, police were summoned to the Hilltop Circle address again when the victim saw Waldroup videotaping her.
The victim said she and another neighbor were in the victim’s back yard when Waldroup began videotaping them. The victim then used a video camera to record Waldroup videotaping her.
The responding officer reviewed the tape which showed Waldroup videotaping the victim. Waldroup then walked up to the fence and stood ten to 15 feet away from the victim and continued videotaping.
The victim told Waldroup to stop and that she was violating the conditions of her bond. The victim then advised she was calling police.
When an officer arrived at Waldroup’s house, he could hear Waldroup crying hysterically and talking on the phone. Waldroup reportedly could be heard telling the caller that she was about to be taken to jail and did not want the Auburn Police Department at her home.
Upon speaking with the officer, Waldroup became very agitated and said she only recorded the victim’s activities because the woman had been provoking her dogs. Waldroup insisted that the officer view her videotape.
The officer did so and saw several instances where Waldroup videotaped the victim. Waldroup also narrated part of the tape saying that she was recording the victim’s activities for the sake of her dogs and because the victim came outside every time she did.
After reviewing the tape, the officer noted that Waldroup had “routinely and clearly” placed the victim under surveillance. The tape even showed that Waldroup had gone to the victim’s place of work in an attempt to locate the victim’s vehicle. Waldroup recited the victim’s work schedule and routine as part of the videotape narration.
Waldroup was charged with aggravated stalking for violating the conditions of her bond.
