An Espanola man is accused of spying on his female neighbor by planting a camera in an unusual place.

The woman says she went to replace the bottle in her Glade Air Freshener when she found a hidden camera.

When police played the video showing the man who put it there, the woman says she recognized her neighbor, 67-year-old Johnny Chacon.

Police say Chacon admitted to breaking into the woman’s house and swapping out her air freshener for one with a recording device hidden inside.

The woman says she had never invited Chacon into her house and has no idea when he planted the device.

Chacon is charged with voyeurism and breaking and entering.
