(WMC-TV) - A Mid-South man is charged in connection with putting a camera in a women's restroom.

Unfortunately these type stories are all too common: An unsuspecting victim stumbles upon a camera that has been recording their most private moments.

This time, police say the voyeur tried to bribe her into keeping it a secret.

While using the restroom at work, the 26-year-old victim noticed something under the sink.

She used the light on her cell phone to get a closer look. When the lens' flare reflected back at her, she discovered a hidden USB camera.

When she put the USB into her work camera, there were only three files in storage: one with her name on it that showed her using the restroom, another that included video of the suspect, and a third that included video of her making the discovery.

The only other person who had keys to the restroom was reportedly her co-worker, Darryl Hollingsworth.

According to an affidavit of complaint, he apologized to her and offered her $2,000 not to tell anyone. No one answered the door at Hollingsworth's listed address, but now he must answer to a judge on a photographing without consent charge.

Surveillance experts say law allows you to video people just about anywhere except a place they can expect privacy.

Hollingsworth's Bond was set at $100.
