CROCKETT – A Crockett man was arrested last for allegedly videotaping customers at a local business.

Arturo Fajardo Rodriguez, 27, was arrested by Crockett Police Department last Tuesday, after officers were dispatched to a business in reference to a hidden camera that had been installed in a public restroom, according to Crockett Chief of Police Clayton Smith.

An employee at the business had notified supervisors upon discovery, and then law enforcement was notified. A recording on the device had captured a suspect placing the camera above the ceiling tile, according to Smith, and Rodriguez was identified as a suspect.

Rodriguez was brought in for questioning and cooperated with investigators, and then taken into custody. Smith stated that his department feels it would be counterproductive to publicly release the name of the business involved, and the investigation is ongoing and still active.

“If you are found to be a victim of this crime, you will be contacted individually and given more information,” Smith said. The charge of Invasive Visual Recording in the state of Texas is a state jail felony.

Rodriguez was brought in for questioning and cooperated with investigators, and then taken into custody. Smith said Rodriguez bonded out the same day on a $10,000 bond. Smith stated that his department feels it would be counterproductive to publicly release the name of the business involved, and the investigation is ongoing and still active. Smith said there are additional charges that will likely come.
