A 39-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of secretly filming an underage girl inside a Tucson foster home, police said.

Whytte Duncan was booked into the Pima County jail on three counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and ten counts of surreptitious recording, a Tucson police news release said.

Tucson Police Department's crimes against children unit began an investigation in June after a report about a video recording device found inside a bathroom at the foster home.

Detectives determined the recordings on the device were of an under-aged girl, the release said.

Duncan, who worked for Casa de los Niños as a transporter, was arrested after detectives obtained a search warrant and collected several computers and small recording devices.

Additional charges may be added at a later date as the investigation is ongoing, police say.

Anyone with information is asked to call 88-CRIME, an anonymous tipster line.
