CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Police in Virginia say they’ve charged a man with filming undressed people without their consent and possession of child pornography after a hidden camera was found inside a home.

Albemarle County police said in a statement Wednesday that officers had arrested 28-year-old John Michael Garvis following a monthslong investigation.

Police said they were able to uncover evidence from cameras and electronic devices that were seized from Garvis’ home during a search.

He was charged with two counts of possessing child pornography, two counts of intercepting wire communication and 12 counts of non-consensual filming of undressed persons.

It’s unclear whether Garvis has an attorney who can comment on him.
