An Elgin man was arrested after police said he placed a hidden camera in a women's washroom.
Jose Garcia, 33, of the 100 block of South Chapel Street, was charged Tuesday with one count of unauthorized video recording/transmission, police said Wednesday afternoon.
Police responded to a call about 8 p.m. Monday about a hidden camera found in the washroom of a business in the 2500 block of Galvin Drive in Elgin. Garcia, an employee of the business, was identified as a suspect during the investigation, Cmdr. Colin Fleury said.
Fleury said the business is not a store frequented by the public.
