A Hall County man is accused of hiding a camera inside a woman’s bedroom, officials said.

Vernon Kyle Rowe, 30, of Cumming, was arrested Monday on a felony invasion of privacy charge, Hall County sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Scott Ware said.

Hall County deputies say Rowe observed and photographed the woman through a secret camera hidden in an electrical outlet. Deputies believe Rowe installed the camera in July and watched the woman’s bedroom activities for months.

Authorities did not say how Rowe allegedly obtained access to the bedroom.

When the woman found the camera, she notified law enforcement and, Ware said, a warrant for Rowe’s arrest was issued Friday.

Rowe posted a $5,000 bond and was released from the Hall County jail, Ware said.
