Police: Levittown man arrested for spying on neighbor, recording videoPosted: Updated:
A Levittown man has been arrested for spying on a female neighbor more than a dozen times, police say.
Michael Drummond said nothing as he was led to court in handcuffs on charges that he secretly recorded video of his neighbor multiple times through a window in her house.
They say the 46-year-old hid in the bushes of his neighbor's backyard around 11 p.m. Saturday and recorded video of the 46-year-old woman through a window of her house.
Police tell News 12 that they conducted an investigation and found that Drummond has done the same thing about 15 times since September.
In each case, police say Drummond targeted the same 46-year-old victim.
In court Sunday, the judge signed an order of protection for Drummond to keep away from the woman.
Drummond was released without bail and is being charged with unlawful surveillance, stalking and harassment.
Prosecutors say he has no prior criminal history.
Investigators say there could be more victims out there. Police are asking anyone who think they may be a victim of a similar incident to call their local precinct.
