A Brownwood man indicted on allegations he photographed women without their consent has been taken into federal custody.

A Brown County Grand Jury returned 10 indictments against 50-year-old Johnny Wright alleging improper photography or visual recording in August.

The grand jury also returned indictments alleging evidence tampering and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.

Wright is alleged to have possessed a .22 caliber rifle.

Wright, a registered sex offender, was arrested in June for using his cell phone to photograph the backsides of women, mostly in Wal-Mart.

Now, Wright is in federal custody on a firearms case.

He was set to stand trial next month, but the state cannot try Wright until federal authorities are done with him.
