Idaho college student charged with voyeurism in hidden camera case
A Brigham Young University-Idaho student has been charged with felony video voyeurism after police say he hid cameras in an apartment.
Devan MacCabe, 23, of Salem, Utah, was arrested and booked into the Madison County Jail on Friday, Jan. 20.
"Six girls living in the La Jolla apartments called us and said they found a camera in their bathroom," Rexburg Police Capt. Randy Lewis tells EastIdahoNews.com. "We went over and discovered a little pin hole camera was hidden in a towel hanger."
Investigators believe the camera had been in the bathroom since Dec. 19.
Lewis says MacCabe, who attends BYU-Idaho and is friends with the girls, admitted to police that he put the camera in the bathroom.
"He also admitted that he placed another camera in a bedroom inside the apartment," Lewis says.
A BYU-Idaho spokesman says the university is conducting its own investigation.
