CHATTANOOGA (WRCB)-- After a year-long investigation, a Chattanooga man faces charges for videotaping his now estranged wife, and daughter without them knowing.
Eyewitness News was there as authorities served a warrant for Jason Shaw's arrest.
A woman on Fenchcroft Lane called police to report finding cameras hidden in her closet and her children's bathroom.
According to court documents, the woman's husband, 40-year-old Jason Shaw, admitted to installing the cameras that were connected to a computer in the family's attic.
In August, seven months after Shaw's computer was seized, the TBI recovered a deleted file. In it, video of Shaw's wife changing clothes, taken without her knowledge.
Shaw was arrested and released on bond.
Tuesday, Eyewitness News paid a visit to Shaw's home, but no one answered the door.
Then minutes later a Hamilton County sheriff's deputy showed up to arrest him.
New evidence suggests Shaw's daughter was also unknowingly filmed.
With our camera rolling, the deputy's knock went unanswered, but we spotted someone in the window upstairs.
Still, no one came to the door.
According to the deputy, Shaw's attorney is arranging for his client to turn himself in.
We wanted to know if there could be more charges coming.
A spokesperson for the sheriff's office refused to comment, only saying the investigation against Jason Shaw is on-going.
It seems charges are mounting.
Late Tuesday afternoon, drug charges were filed against Shaw, but authorities would not say if they are connected to the case.
According to the Hamilton County Court Clerk's Office, Jason Shaw is charged with two counts of photographing without consent, possession of drug paraphernalia, and marijuana.
He heads to court in January.
