FULLERTON – A 42-year-old San Jose man is in custody after Fullerton police arrested him on suspicion of posing as a photographer to lure two teenage girls into taking sexy photos.
Coopy Boyer was arrested on suspicion of contacting a minor with the intent to commit a sexual offense, according to the Fullerton Police Department. His bail was set at $100,000, according to sheriff’s arrest records.
On Saturday, two teenage girls told Fullerton police they were approached by a man, who identified himself as James Keong, in the area of Warner Avenue and Goldenwest Street in Huntington Beach. Police said he claimed to be a photographer with Zoom Exposure Photography and told the girls he wanted to take their photos.
The girls gave him their phone numbers and over the next several days, the man sent dozens of texts, each time becoming more suggestive about the types of photographs he wanted to take, police said.
He suggested he bring alcohol and photograph the girls playing dress-up while their parents were away, police added.
When the girls proposed having parents present, the man said there was no need for their parents to sign any waivers for him to shoot photos, police said. He offered to go to their house and pick them up.
According to police, a Nov. 24 meeting was set up in Fullerton where the man was to pick up the girls. Instead, the police were waiting. The man attempted to flee and tossed his cell phone out the car window before being blocked by police.
Police determined the arrested man’s real identity is Coopy Boyer and believe there may be other victims.
Anyone who may have been approached is urged to call Detective Ron Bair at 714-738-6762.
