SOUTH OGDEN, Utah (KSTU) -- A man is accused of spying on his roommate and the roommate’s girlfriend while they were in the shower.
The man, Phillip Andrew Rackham, allegedly used a cellphone to spy under the door of the bathroom.
The roommate, Andrew Bright, says he and his girlfriend, Erika Tingey, were in the shower at about 1 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 29, when the incident took place.
Bright says he saw a camera phone under the bathroom door. Bright called out and the phone was then pulled away from the door, according to court documents.
Tingey sent a text message to Rackham to ask him if he put the camera phone under the bathroom door. According to the probable cause statement, Rackham responded that it was him and he texted back that he felt like a “creep.”
Bright reported the alleged incident to the police the next day.
Police say when they visited Rackham’s home, he admitted to using a cellphone under the door of the bathroom but denied taking a video. A police officer says he found multiple videos in the phone’s trash file. One video was more than six minutes long, showing Bright and Tingey in the shower together. Another recovered video shows a female using the restroom filmed through a crack in the door, according to court documents.
Rackham admitted in a witness statement that he knew his roommates were in the shower and he used a phone to look under the door, police say. He is charged with two counts of voyeurism by electronic equipment that had been concealed or disguised.
