Sumter County deputies said they arrested a man they had been looking for after surveillance video caught him touching and taking pictures under women's skirt at a Walmart.

Deputies said on Friday they  responded to the 8000 block of County Road 648 in reference to Lance  Windisch being at a home armed with a handgun. 

As deputies arrived, several family members ran out of the house and advised Windisch had forced his way into his mother's residence and was armed, officials said. 

Deputies said they set up a perimeter around the  home and called out for SWAT and negotiators.

Deputies said they made contact with Windisch's mother by phone and she told them he was no longer  there.

Once Windisch's mother and grand-mother were secured outside the residence, the SWAT team made entry and cleared the residence and confirmed he was not there.

Deputies say Sunday they was advised of a sighting of Windisch at the Nobleton Circle K convenient store on County Road 476.
