A maintenance worker was arrested, and evidence seized, after hidden cameras were found inside a Sears department store in North Hollywood.

27-year-old Alejandro Gamiz was arrested April 12 and booked on suspicion of burglary for the surreptitious filming of unsuspecting women, according to authorities.

It's unclear exactly when the cameras, hidden behind the walls of fitting rooms and bathrooms, were installed. KTLA-TV reported that Gamiz may have been taping women for three years, said the L.A. Times.

The suspect was taken to the L.A. County Jail where he was released after posting $20,0000 bail. A court date set for May 11.

Store security personnel and Gamiz are reportedly cooperating with detectives, NBC LA reports.
