A 66-year-old Irving man has been charged in a 2014 case in which a hidden camera was found inside the women’s restroom at a Grapevine restaurant.
Andrew Crawford Boden is accused of placing the camera to record women. He was charged this month with improper photography or visual recording, a state jail felony.
His first court appearance is scheduled for next week in Criminal District Court No. 297.
Boden could not be reached for comment Thursday.

He also is accused of placing hidden cameras inside restrooms at an Irving restaurant and a Dallas grocery store in 2014.
He became a suspect in 2014 after a camera was found in a Grapevine Braum’s restroom. Investigators looking at the video found images of Boden’s face taken as he placed the camera.
It took almost two years for the charge to be filed in Tarrant County, although Boden was charged in Dallas County in 2014.
“Our records reflect we received the case the first week of January,” said Sam Jordan, a spokeswoman for the Tarrant County district attorney’s office. “It is assigned to a prosecutor and we are pursuing the charges.”
Almost 1,000 videos recorded by hidden cameras in restrooms were found on Boden’s work and home computers, police have said.
If convicted of the Tarrant and Dallas charges, he faces a maximum of two years in prison and a $10,000 fine on each count.
