LAWRENCEVILLE -- Two Gwinnett men were recently booked in separate cases for allegedly spying on women at their homes.

Duluth resident Ja Ku, 33, was booked Friday at the Gwinnett County Jail in a case that dates back to March. He's charged with two felony counts of eavesdropping.

Authorities believe Ku made cell-phone camera recordings of two females through their bedroom blinds about 1:30 a.m. on March 17. The victims, who are related, lived in an apartment near Ku's on Pleasant Hill Road, according to Gwinnett County Sheriff's Department records.

Authorities found Ku in Savannah at the Chatham County Jail, where he'd been booked in April for a probation violation. He remains at the Gwinnett County Jail without bond.

In the other case, Norcross resident Manuel Renteria, 44, is charged with peeping Tom for allegedly spying on a woman who lived in a separate unit at his apartment complex around midnight on June 19.

Renteria is also being held without bond, as he was wanted in Forsyth County, records show.
