DURHAM, N.H. -- University of New Hampshire police arrested an 18-year-old Friday in connection with several incidents that took place over the last five weeks on the school's campus, including a break-in.
The school reported that someone was making video recordings in the women's bathrooms at the school and a dorm room was broken into, according to officials. Kewei Chen, of Ningbo Cixi, China, was arrested in connection with at least one "Peeing Tom" incident. He was charged with burglary, attempted burglary, two counts of violation of privacy and criminal trespass. He was a student when the incidents occurred, but has been banned from the campus, officials say.
"Our department's number one priority is the safety and well-being of our campus community," said UNH Police Chief Paul Dean in a recent release. "Being able to identify Mr. Chen was the result of great teamwork among the police department, housing and residential life. Everyone was committed to bringing this to a stop and their persistence made it possible."
Chen is being held on $15,000 cash bail and has surrendered his passport. He is due next in court on March 31.
