A former sex offender is facing criminal charges after taking photographs of children while working at The Natural Grocery Company in Berkeley and El Cerrito, according to police and court papers.

The Berkeley Police Department began looking into Calica on Nov. 7, 2022, after receiving reports that he had followed an 11-year-old girl through Berkeley Natural Grocery and repeatedly photographed her while her mother shopped elsewhere in the store.

The Natural Grocery Company quickly realized how serious the situation was and "immediately took appropriate internal action," BPD said.

Here's our exclusive report.
