    Police said the recording device was disguised to look like an air freshener and was only up for about an hour before someone spotted it. The device was attached to the wall next to a shower in a family changing area at the Oak Point Recreation Center.

    Plano police said only one family was photographed by the camera -- and they were notified by authorities after the camera was found.

    Police said they've checked every recreation center in Plano for other hidden cameras and alerted neighboring cities to check their bathrooms for similar devices.

    Furber, from Garland, turned himself in to the Collin County Detention Center Monday. He was free on $25,000 bond Monday night.
