SPANISH FORK — A man who police say put a hidden camera in his girlfriend's house while her family wasn't home is now facing criminal charges.

The 20-year-old Spanish Fork man was charged Monday in 4th District Court with burglary, a second-degree felony, and two counts of voyeurism, a class A misdemeanor.

In August, a 17-year-old girl discovered a wireless camera in her bedroom.

"Police were able to trace the purchase of the camera back to the defendant and a forensic search of his phone showed that he had accessed the camera through the victim's home WiFi," according to charging documents.

When questioned by police, the man admitted to entering the house when the family wasn't home and putting it in another bedroom, before later moving it to the teenager's bedroom, according to the charges.
