A Florida man has been arrested and charged with video voyeurism on accusations he installed hidden video cameras in his ex-girlfriend's home inside her daughter's bathroom and bedroom.

According to a statement posted to Facebook, John J. Butler was arrested on video voyeurism charges on Wednesday, May 22, and taken to Marion County Jail after his ex-girlfriend found a video camera installed in an electrical outlet in her daughter's bathroom on Friday, May 17, and alerted police.

Officers arrived at her home and confirmed the existence of the device — a small camera with a lens that was facing the shower and toilet.

Upon their first visit, the woman alleged to officers that her ex, Butler, 58, had lived with them for a period of time during their relationship.

The Ocala Police Department (OPD) returned to the home again on Sunday, May 19, regarding a second camera that someone had found in the unidentified daughter's bedroom. Per the statement, the camera was disguised as a wi-fi router. Someone alleged to police that Butler had installed the router in the home years ago.

He was taken to Marion County Jail after refusing to cooperate in a police interview, the statement alleges.

It's not immediately clear if Butler has entered a plea or retained an attorney.
