GRAPEVINE — The man arrested for putting a hidden camera inside the ladies room at a Grapevine restaurant allegedly admitted to leaving several more cameras around the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
It didn’t take long after Grapevine police released crystal clear pictures of their suspect for tipsters to call to share the man’s identity. He is 64-year-old Andrew Boden of Irving.
“Some of that information that we were able to determine gave us a name to our suspect, and we were able to identify him that way,” said Grapevine police spokesman Sgt. Robert Eberling.
Investigators collected enough evidence to arrest Boden for allegedly installing a fake electrical outlet with a camera in the center inside a bathroom in the Braum’s restaurant in the 1300 block of Main Street in Grapevine.
Officers arrested Boden up Monday night at a Candlewood Suites hotel in Irving, and when he sat down to chat with investigators, the suspect talked.
The search warrant says Boden admitted he placed the hidden camera in the ladies bathroom at Braum’s; then admitted he has placed other cameras in several different locations throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
In the search warrant, police indicated the suspect was seen entering a "ladies gym" 10 days after he purchased a hidden camera.
Authorities said five videos were recovered from the hidden camera found inside the Braum's. According to police, the first video captured an image of the suspect. Police sent the image to media in their search for the suspect and later announced he was identified as Boden.
In the video, the suspect is seen holding a dark-colored cup with a red lid, which is similar to a cup the man was seen holding while entering the ladies gym, the warrant said.
Police searched Boden's Irving office, where they seized a laptop computer and cup.
Police are tight-lipped about where the spy cameras could be... or if they’ve found any of them.
“We have some more evidence to gather from the camera we’ve received, so that’s what we’re focusing in on here,” Eberling said.
Detectives are now combing through Boden’s computers and e-mails and the fake outlet that started it all, in hopes that that camera will lead them to the others.
Boden was released on a $2,000 bond.
