A Utah man has been accused of placing a small camera in the bathroom of a Rexburg apartment where six young women live.

The Post Register reports Devan MacCabe, 23, of Salem, Utah, was booked Friday into the Madison County Jail on a felony charge of video voyeurism.

Rexburg Police spokesman Capt. Randy Lewis says a small camera was found hidden inside a towel hook mounted in the bathroom.

The suspect and the victims are Brigham Young University-Idaho students.

Lewis says the suspect lives in the same apartment complex as the women and was acquainted with them.
