HILLSBORO, MO (KFVS) -

A man was arrested at the House Springs Price Shopper store after police say he hid a video recorder in the ceiling of the women's restroom.

Frank Fuchs, 51, is charged with invasion of privacy of multiple individuals, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.

A store employee found the camera, and was able to identity Frank Fuchs, 51, from photos taken from the device.

Fuchs was detained by store employees until police arrived.

Fuchs' bond is set at $50,000 cash. He was taken to the Jefferson County Jail.

Anyone who may have used the women's restroom on Sunday, July 15, 2012 between 12 p.m. and approximately 1:30 p.m. is asked to call the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office at 636-797-5515.

It is believed Fuchs may have attempted to video other victims throughout the area. The investigation is continuing.
