SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Police have arrested a Lehi man accused of taking pictures of young boys in a bathroom at a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints building.

Authorities said Thursday that 39-year-old Jeffery Aaron Young went to an LDS congregation across town from the one he attends and took the pictures through a gap in a bathroom stall.

Lehi Police Lt. Toby Peterson says the man appeared at the LDS meetinghouse three times in November and December before he was caught.

He was arrested on suspicion of voyeurism and tampering with evidence.

KUTV reports that Young told police he stopped at the church because he was having stomach problems and was too embarrassed to use the toilet at his own ward.

No attorney was immediately listed for Young, and he did not a publicly listed phone number.
