A camp host at a Morrow County park was arrested Tuesday for allegedly peeping at women through a hole in the restroom facilities.
Morrow County sheriff's deputies began investigating the allegations over the weekend after getting a tip from people at the Morrow/Grant OHV park that someone was spying on them as they used the restroom, said Undersheriff Steven Myren.
A female reserve deputy and female detective rented a cabin at the park Monday. On Tuesday, the reserve deputy went into the restroom facilities while the detective watched from a distance, Myren said.
John Earl McBride was then seen entering a maintenance space between the restrooms, Myren said. When the detective opened the door, McBride was peeking through a small hole in the wall.
Never miss a local story.
The 54-year-old Pilot Rock man is a contract vendor acting as the camp host at the park for the past two seasons. He is not a Morrow County employee, Myren said.
McBride was arrested and booked into the Umatilla County jail on multiple counts of criminal mischief and invasion of personal property.
Anyone with information about the case can call Morrow County sheriff's deputies at 541-676-5317.
