Police in Connecticut say a man charged with installing four cameras inside a woman’s home without her knowledge said he did it because he “just wanted to know what she was doing.”

The Republican-American reports (https://bit.ly/2Sj46Uc) that 57-year-old Christopher Pelgrift, of Salisbury, was charged with burglary, stalking, breach of peace and voyeurism.

Police say he briefly hired the woman as a health coach and entered her home in Salisbury on Tuesday, placing cameras in the bathrooms and bedrooms. The woman noticed a camera and called police.

Police say Pelgrift inadvertently captured images of himself installing the cameras. 

He posted $75,000 bond and was ordered to stay away from the woman.

Pelgrift says he has bipolar disorder and is a recovering substance abuser. No lawyer was listed in court records.
