WHATCOM COUNTY, Wash. — Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested and booked a Lynden man into the Whatcom County Jail on March 26th charged with voyeurism after an investigation into claims he had set up a video camera in bathroom in a private residence.
According to the affidavit of probable cause filed in Whatcom County Superior Court, the camera, which looked like an electronic charger, was suspected to be a camera by one of the victims after being in place for several weeks. The victim was able to access a memory card found in the device and discovered videos and photos of people in various stages of undress. This was brought to law enforcement’s attention.
A search warrant was obtained for investigators to review the contents of the memory card and they were able to confirm the victim’s findings, including videos of minors. In addition, the suspect’s arm was visible in 1 video while being recorded plugging in the device according to the affidavit.
The suspect, identified as Donald Eddy Feliciano, age 33, was interviewed by WCSO detectives. He maintained that someone else must have placed the camera but could not explain how this person could have done so and gone unnoticed nor did he explain the presence of his arm in 1 of the videos according to the affidavit.
Court records indicate a no-contact protection order was granted by the court restricting Feliciano from coming within 500 feet of any of the victims. He was also ordered to surrender any firearms or dangerous weapons to law enforcement.
Feliciano was released March 29th after posting $800 cash bail according to jail records.
An arraignment is scheduled for April 16th.
