COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WECT) -

A former Fair Bluff police officer was arrested Tuesday morning after being wanted on felony secret peeping charges.

Donald Brian Beauchaine is accused of using a secret video camera to take inappropriate photos of an unsuspecting person in his Lake Waccamaw home April 1 through June 4, according to Lake Waccamaw Police Chief Scott Hyatt.

Authorities were unable to serve the charges last week, but Hyatt said he could not explain the delay due to HIPPA, an act that protects health information.

Hyatt said the SBI is examining items that may lead to further charges.

Beauchaine was reported missing the evening of June 4. Hyatt said Beauchaine left his home after someone found the hidden camera.

He was found the next night outside a restaurant in Leland.
