SHERWOOD, OR (KPTV) -

A man accused of planting a camera in the restroom of a Sherwood Starbucks is facing criminal charges and police believe he may have done the same thing at a home in Bend.

Richard Ipsen turned himself into the Washington County Sheriff's Office Tuesday.

He faces eight counts of invasion of personal privacy and eight counts of attempted invasion of personal privacy.

Sherwood police began their investigation May 1, when a Starbucks employee found the hidden camera in a bathroom.

The camera captured dozens of patrons on video when they entered and used the public restroom, officers said.

After releasing surveillance pictures and with the assistance of the public, detectives identified Ipsen as a suspect.

Sherwood police contacted officers in Bend after learning Ipsen is associated with a house there. Bend police served a search warrant at the home on 2325 N.W. Lolo Drive June 14.

Detectives said they found evidence of house guests being recorded in the bathroom area. That investigation is ongoing and Ipsen is not yet facing charges in Bend.

Ipsen was released from local police custody Tuesday afternoon. He is due back in court July 5 and hired Stephen Houze as his attorney. The local lawyer told Fox 12 they have no comment on the case at this time.

    On Monday the Associated Press released its top 25 preseason poll for college football. And for the third straight year, Texas A&M didn't make the cut. Starting fast though and moving their way up the polls in recent seasons hasn't been the problem. In fact, the Aggies, who have over a dozen East Texans on the roster, were number four in the initial playoff rankings last year.
