An Irving man has been accused of putting a small camera disguised as an electrical outlet in a women’s restroom in a Braum’s store in Grapevine.

Andrew Crawford Boden, 64, was arrested about 5 p.m. Monday in Irving, Sgt. Robert Eberling, a Grapevine police spokesman, said in a news release.

Boden faces a charge of improper photography or video recording, a felony. He posted $2,000 bail and was released from the Grapevine Jail about 6 p.m., Eberling said.

An employee of the store at 1300 S. Main St. called police after seeing the device sliding off the wall. The camera, disguised as an outlet, had been stuck to the restroom wall with double-sided tape, according to earlier reports.

“From several tips, detectives were able to identify Boden as the individual pictured in two photographs recovered from the hidden camera,” Eberling said.

Police subsequently obtained an arrest warrant for Boden, Eberling said.

“This case is still under investigation by the Grapevine Police Department’s criminal investigation division,” Eberling said.
