A man and woman accused of taking photos of young girls in bathroom stalls around the St. Louis region, including at South County Center mall, also took photos of other girls in various other stores including the Oakville Walmart and West County Center, police warned Thursday.

Police found the other photos as the investigation progressed into Heather McDorman, 29, of Barnhart, and Zachary Hamby, 28, of Florissant, who were charged last week with invasion of privacy and three counts of statutory sodomy or attempted sodomy on a person less than 12 years of age for alleged sexual abuse of a 4-year-old boy. Both are being held on $250,000 cash-only bond.
