Pennsylvania State Police say a Greensburg man hid a cell phone in his bathroom and secretly recorded video of a teenage girl’s partially nude body.
Carlos Rafael Alvarado, 45, is facing child pornography, invasion of privacy, tampering with evidence, and drug possession charges, according to online court records.
A state trooper alleged in a criminal complaint filed Friday that the teen discovered the photos and videos of herself in April while she was using Alvarado’s laptop.
Alvarado, the complaint alleged, took the videos and photographs using his cell phone that he hid in the bathroom and transferred them to his laptop. It is also alleged that his computer was connected to a television in Alvarado’s bedroom.
Numerous photos and videos were found on both Alvarado’s cell phone and laptop when police seized it in May, the complaint alleged.
Authorities alleged that the teen reported finding the cell phone in the bathroom while she was changing clothes. The phone had been recording for about 13 minutes, the complaint alleged.
A future court date has not been scheduled and information concerning Alvarado’s bail is not currently available.
