    An Irving man has been linked to three hidden cameras found in North Texas found and police are searching for victims.

    Boden turned himself in to the Irving Police Department Friday morning. He faces two counts of improper photography and police said more charges could be on the way.

    Police said cameras were found at bathrooms at the Corner Bakery on the 7400 block of N. MacArthur Boulevard, disguised as door hooks. A customer hung her purse from the hook, and it fell. A store employee looked at the hook, uncovering the camera.

    Inside one of the devices, police saw an image of Boden leaving the bathroom. The discovery was made in August of 2013.

    "We had a side shot image, which was basically he set camera off himself... when he walked out himself it was a glancing angle off a mirror," said Officer Stephen Burres.

    Then, just blocks away, in February of this year, a key-fob sized device was found under the sink at Starbucks on the 5900 block of N. MacArthur Boulevard.

    Police said two victims have been identified, a woman in her 40s and an employee of one of the restaurants.

    "We will also try and locate as many of the patrons that frequented the restaurant and restrooms, see if we can locate them and identify them," said Officer Burres.

    Police also tell us they are investigating Boden's former work place, Pioneer Natural Resources, where they believe Boden hid cameras as well.

    Below, Susan Spratlen, VP of Communication at Pioneer Natural Resources provided this statement:

    "Pioneer is aware of the allegations and is cooperating with law enforcement personnel. I can confirm that Andrew Boden is no longer employed with the company. Due to the ongoing criminal investigation, further comment would not be appropriate at this time."

    Starbucks and Corner Bakery have not responded to requests for comments.
