As if you needed any extra reasons to avoid the Walmart, cops in Arkansas busted the manager of a Walmart for allegedly taking photos of a nine-year-old boy while the kid was using the restroom.

The Smoking Gun reports that 35-year-old Antoine Jones is free on $50,000 bail following his arrest late last month on felony video voyeurism and child pornography charges stemming from an incident at the Walmart in Malvern, a city about 45 miles southwest of Little Rock.

Police said that Jones slipped his cellphone under a bathroom store occupied by the child and took photos. After the child reported the situation to his mother, the Malvern Police Department officers were summoned to the Walmart, and Jones, an assistant manager, was arrested.

Jones, who has been suspended by the retailer, will likely face additional charges based on dozens of images found on his phone. The probe of Jones has expanded to include FBI agents and law enforcement officials from other jurisdictions, according to a police spokesperson.
