Deputies said on May 10, they received a complaint that Larry Terry Rudisill, 69, of Statesville, NC, had been frequently seen with a camera attached to his coat filming people.

The sheriffs office said they soon discovered Rudisill had pending charges of indecent liberties with a child and first-degree sex offense with a child in Iredell County Superior Court. 

A bond modification hearing was held on May 9 and Rudisill’s bond had been modified to include the condition he was not allowed to be on any park premises with any type of recording device.

On May 13, deputies said they received a telephone call from multiple witnesses that Rudisill was at the Statesville Soccer Complex.
