RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- A state employee was arrested after he was accused of using a camera to peep inside a bathroom at the North Carolina Correctional Institute for Women.

NCDPS released the following statement:
"The Department of Public Safety has zero tolerance for any staff involved in any illegal activity. The Department has many hard-working correctional professionals and it takes staff arrests very seriously.
The Department is fully cooperating with law enforcement."
