SAN DIEGO (AP) — A U.S. Border Patrol supervisor who was under investigation for allegedly installing a camera in a women's restroom has been arrested.

U-T San Diego ( ) reports Armando Gonzalez was taken into custody Friday in San Diego County. FBI spokesman Darrell Foxworth says charges are sealed until Gonzalez appears in federal court Monday.

Gonzalez was issued a citation in January for allegedly installing a camera in a restroom at a Border Patrol station in San Diego. San Diego police said at the time that he was accused of peeping with a recording a device.

Gonzalez's attorney, Gretchen von Helms, has said the issue is whether the camera was installed for legal investigative purposes.

Gonzalez has been a Border Patrol employee for more than 20 years.
