PHOENIX (CBS5) -

An Arizona woman, accused of secretly photographing and videotaping other women in public restrooms throughout the Phoenix area, has posted bond.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office confirmed on Friday afternoon that Laura Laibe, 37, of Surprise, was released on bond.

Laibe was arrested Thursday morning at the home she shares with her husband and several children. She was booked into jail on 38 counts of voyeurism.

The images Laibe is accused of taking were posted and sold on the Internet, said Phoenix police Sgt. Trent Crump.

Police believe Laibe may have been involved in this type of activity for more than a year.

"There were even times where she would be in a stall so long there would be people that would check her welfare," Crump said. "And that is literally how we're talking about this occurring. There is a camera placed on the floor or down low in a stall that doesn't reach the floor, and taking images of those who are in there. And as I said before, at a state of partial undress or who are literally going to the restroom."

They believe some of the victims are among our most vulnerable.

"(It) appears to be mothers or family who are helping small children in going to the restroom," Crump said.

Laibe chose restrooms at several large venues, including Chase Field, the University of Phoenix Stadium, Sky Harbor International Airport, the Rainforest Cafe and local Walmart stores, Crump said.

The images were taken between May 17 and Sept. 20.

A woman who answered the door at Laibe's residence was asked if she knew of the alleged activity.

"I know there was a SWAT team here this morning," the unidentified woman said before closing the door.

Neighbors said they are shocked and disgusted at the allegations.

"I'm worried about the kids and I am concerned for Laura," said a neighbor who identified herself as Debbie C. "I'm very upset she would engage in something like this."

"We believe there are some circumstances in which someone encountered her or may have encountered her more than once, and we would like to hear from those individuals," Crump said at a news briefing.

Investigators ask that anyone who may have run into the woman to contact the police department's Family Investigations Unit at 602-534-2121 and ask for Detective Curley.

Police have not identified any specific victims, but that is not stopping them from pursuing charges.

Crump emphasized that if you recognize the suspect as someone you ran into at a Diamondbacks game on or about April 13 or on or about Sept. 13 or at the Aug. 24 Arizona Cardinals game in Glendale, police want you to call.
