FAIR BLUFF, NC (WECT) -

The Fair Bluff Town Council voted Wednesday to fire police officer Brian Beauchaine after he was arrested on charges of secret peeping on June 17.

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. 

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

Beauchaine was placed on indefinite suspension without pay prior to his arrest.

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.
