Peeping tom arrest sparks complaints

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office has determined a salesman resembling a man recently charged as a Peeping Tom is indeed selling children's books door-to-door.

The reports from concerned residents in Bluffton and Hilton Head Island neighborhoods followed the July 16 arrest of Bret Holterman, 29, on accusations of looking in an 8-year-old girl's bedroom window in Bluffton's Mill Creek neighborhood, according to a Sheriff's Office news release.

Detectives have determined the salesman was not Holterman, and is employed by a legitimate company that sells educational materials.
