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.
