An employee at a gym in Orange County is in custody and suspected of trying to videotape women in the locker room.Twenty-two-year-old David Emanuel Ramos is accused of hiding a video camera in a potted plant. The camera was said to be pointed toward an area where women dress and undress.

A woman found the camera and alerted the gym's manager. Investigators also seized evidence from Ramos's home.

"Currently it is a misdemeanor, but it all depends what he did with the video," said Jim Armormino from the Orange County Sheriff's Department. "If he did post it on the Internet, or sold it, then the offense becomes more serious."

Investigators won't say whether they found any video in Ramos's home.
