BRIEF: Police: Man videotaped Austin Pets Alive volunteers while they were changing
Jan 25, 2013 (Austin American-Statesman - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
A volunteer for Austin Pets Alive used a video camera to record other volunteers changing in a private dressing room at the nonprofit's headquarters on West Cesar Chavez Street, according to arrest records.
David Jeffrey Rodriguez, 32, has been charged with improper photography or video recording, a state jail felony, according to an arrest affidavit.
According to the affidavit, a female volunteer on Dec. 1 noticed a black video camera behind some hospital scrubs in the dressing room where she had to change before dealing with dogs with a highly contagious disease.
The volunteer turned the camera into police, who found footage on the camera showing Rodriguez "secreting the camera in the dressing room," as well as footage of other female employees changing, according to the affidavit.
Austin police say Rodriguez was booked into Travis County Jail on Tuesday on $10,000 bail. He was not shown in the jail on Friday.
