WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — A Wichita man has been charged with using a hidden camera to record a woman.

According to court documents, Christopher Garnier was charged on May 17 with six counts of invasion of privacy. On May 29, the criminal complaint was amended to add three counts of sexual exploitation of a child.

He was held on $75,000 bond until his next court appearance on May 28. It came out on May 17th.

According to court documents, investigators say he may have used an alarm clock with a hidden camera to record the woman. Court records do not indicate the woman’s age. Investigators say they found seven recordings on an app that connect to the hidden alarm clock camera on Garnier’s cell phone, six including nudity.

Garnier was arrested at his workplace at the time on a traffic warrant.

Garnier’s former workplace was Wichita State University. WSU released the following statement:
