A Border Patrol supervisor accused of hiding a camera in the women’s bathroom at an agency station in California was indicted Thursday on 19 counts.
The indictment alleges that Armando Gonzalez, 46, “with intent, did capture an image of a private area of an individual without their consent … and knowingly did so under circumstances in which the individual had a reasonable expectation of privacy,” from July 19, 2013, until Jan. 9 at the Chula Vista station, the U-T San Diego reports.
Gonzalez was arrested earlier this month and pleaded not guilty to related charges.
The motion-activated camera was found Jan. 9, and Gonzalez claimed he installed it because he suspected an employee was using illegal drugs.
The indictment states otherwise: “No such drug investigation was ongoing.”
