LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A New Albany Police officer is accused of setting up a camera to secretly record women in a changing room.
Adam Schneider, 40, was arrested by Indiana State Police in Sellersburg on Friday and charged with two counts of voyeurism.
New Albany Police Chief Todd Bailey said the department's administration was "advised of potential misconduct" by Schneider two weeks ago.
Indiana State Police were contacted to help investigate the allegations, Bailey said. Schneider was suspended and "relieved of his official duties."
"At the NAPD, our officers are held to the highest standards of personal and professional conduct, and when presented with the current allegations, we took appropriate action immediately," Bailey said.
In a news release, ISP said a search warrant was obtained for Schneider's personal phone during its investigation. On it, detectives found two videos and several photos of "two separate adult females changing clothes in what appeared to be a private changing room.
"In one video, the female was completely undressed. The videos gave the appearance the females did not know they were being filmed," ISP Sgt. Carey Huls said.
Detectives found that a camera had been mounted inside a dressing room, which was part of a business at Schneider's home in Memphis, Indiana. They also found the females were unaware that they were being filmed.
According to court records, a judge issued a warrant for Schneider's arrest. At last check, he had posted a $10,000 court cash bail — $1,000 cash — at the Clark County Jail.
