Home inspector busted pleasuring himself with Elmo doll: cops

He was tickled by Elmo.

A home inspector in Michigan was allegedly caught on a camera pleasuring himself with an Elmo doll in a customer’s house, according to cops.

Kevin Wayne VanLuven, 59, is accused of pulling the creepy move in the nursery of a 22-year-old woman’s home in Oxford Township on March 12, according to The Smoking Gun, which cited police.

VanLuven — who was hired by the homeowner to inspect the property before a sale —was busted when a web camera alerted her to motion in the room, according to police.

The camera feed then allegedly showed him touching himself with the stuffed Sesame Street character,  prompting her to call 911.

When sheriff’s deputies confronted VanLuven, he claimed to have only moved the doll to look at an electrical outlet, according to the report.

But when officers told him there was a camera in the nursery, VanLuven allegedly made incriminating statements and apologized.

He was charged with aggravated indecent exposure and malicious destruction of property and was booked into the Oakland County jail.

A judge also ordered him to undergo a mental health evaluation and banned him from being alone on residential properties that don’t belong to him.

As of Thursday, he was being held in jail in lieu of a $2,500 bond. He faces up to two years in prison.
