PRICE — A Price man who runs a photography studio has been arrested for investigation of forcible sex abuse and stalking.

Levan W. Hall, 62, was arrested last week and booked into the Carbon County Jail. He was also arrested for investigation of lewdness and electronic communication harassment, the Price Police Department announced Monday.

Hall, who runs Levan Hall's Creations, also had a stalking injunction filed against him on Friday in 7th District Court by a woman who police say is also the victim in the sex abuse investigation.

The woman claimed Hall had been stalking her for several months, according to a prepared statement from police.

"It was learned that after a legitimate business contact with the alleged suspect’s photography business, inappropriate criminal behavior began occurring," police stated.

Investigators served a search warrant on Hall's house last week and "numerous electronic, audiovisual-type equipment, and other items were seized for analysis," according to the statement.

Police declined to release any other information Monday about the alleged crimes, nor would they say whether they suspect there are additional victims. No criminal charges have been filed against Hall, but police said the Carbon County Attorney's Office would review the evidence in the case.

According to Hall's Facebook page, he offered free photo sessions. "If you are picked, you will receive a modeling session where I will shoot between 300 and 500 photos and edit 20 of them for you. Special consideration for dancers, theater, pageant contestants and cheerleaders."

In another video posted on his page, Hall states he is "looking for models," offering free shoots for high school seniors.

According to his LinkedIn page, Hall was a school teacher for 31 years in the Carbon School District until 2013.
