A small-town California fire captain resigned Wednesday, days after his arrest on allegations connected to the clandestine installation of spy gear to video record a minor in the bathroom.
Mark McLeod Wygant, the former fire captain of South Lake Tahoe in the Sierra Nevada mountains, is also said to have possessed as many as 100 videos of the young girl, who was 12, according to court documents (PDF). The defendant, who is being held without bail, installed as many as four spy cameras “for the purpose of recording her nude from multiple angles,” the FBI said in an affidavit.
