FORT WORTH, Texas - A Fort Worth firefighter was arrested after police said he broke into his ex-girlfriend’s home and installed a video camera disguised as a smoke detector.
Edgar Aguilar is charged with burglary with intent to commit a felony.
According to the arrest warrant affidavit, he confessed to placing the camera in her bathroom one day when she was not home. He said he “did not know why he had put the camera up and stated it was stupid.”
Investigators could not locate any video from the camera but believe Aguilar intended to record nude video of his ex-girlfriend.
The fire department said Aguilar has been with the department since 2014. He was reassigned to a desk role and the fire chief has ordered an internal investigation.
His first court appearance is Wednesday.
