LAKE ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -

Lake St. Louis Police say they arrested a former officer on stalking charges for repeatedly visiting a home multiple times on Catamaran Drive in Lake St. Louis.

According to a probable cause statement, Ryan Hall, 36, was parking his vehicle outside of the victim’s home for 20 minutes at a time and then driving away. The victim added that this was occurring two to five times a week and had been happening since May.

The victim told police the area where Hall was parking allowed him to see into her home. She also added that she had observed the vehicle drive up to the spot with the lights off and drive away quickly when the victim was visible on her back porch, according to a probable cause statement obtained by KMOV.

Detectives conducted surveillance on Catamaran Drive last week to see if they could observe Hall in action, the PC statement said. Hall showed up in his vehicle just before 10 p.m. but did not stop at the victim’s described location and left immediately upon arriving. Detectives added that evening the victim’s home had the lights on, but all the windows had their drapes closed.

When officers approached Hall, they said he was in the neighborhood for a 'buy/sell' transaction.

A sergeant at the Lake St. Louis Police Department confirmed that Hall was a former police officer with Lake St. Louis and resigned some time ago.

Hall was arrested on stalking charges on November 2 and was released on November 9 after posting his bail of $1,000.
