GRAPEVINE — On Monday, Grapevine police arrested the man who was pictured setting up a hidden camera in the women's restroom of a Braum's restaurant.

The suspect, 64-year-old Andrew Crawford Boden of Irving, was taken into custody without incident, booked, and released on a $2,000 bond after just one hour in custody.

Photos of the man who set up the secret camera had been circulated far and wide on social media. Police said the suspect accidentally snapped a picture of himself as he was installing the device disguised as an electric socket in a women’s bathroom in a Grapevine restaurant.

Those photos led to tips... which led to Boden's arrest.

Grapevine police said they took him into custody without incident around 5 p.m. He is currently living at a hotel in Irving, investigators said, though they did not reveal which one.

Boden had recently been living in an exclusive gated community in Irving.

He was taken to the Grapevine jail for booking on a charge of improper photography or video recording, which is a state jail felony. He posted a $2,000 bond and was discharged by 6 p.m, police said.

A Braum's employee discovered the hidden camera at the store on Main Street in Grapevine on May 23.

Investigators say they don't know how long the surveillance device had been there, but do believe at least one woman had been photographed. They said there may be more victims.

Police said their investigation is continuing.

If convicted, Boden faces up to two years in jail.
