St. Johns County detectives are trying to identify a second woman they said was victimized by a former World Gym employee arrested earlier this month on a charge of video voyeurism.

Investigators said 36-year-old Jerry Hackney, a former Palatka police officer, placed his cellphone in a closet at the tanning salon at the gym on U.S. 1 South to record people getting into and out of a tanning booth.

According to a police report, the first victim, a 25-year-old woman, found Hackney's cellphone at the tanning salon and gave it to investigators.

Detectives said they found nude images of her and a second woman on the phone.

Investigators said they need to find the second woman to file additional charges against Hackney.
