Man Accused of Secretly Placing Cameras Around Woman's Home

Connecticut State Police have arrested a Salisbury man accused of placing cameras inside a woman’s home without her knowledge.

The suspect, 57-year-old Christopher Pelgrift, of Salisbury, was charged with burglary, stalking, breach of peace and voyeurism.

Police said Pelgift entered a Salisbury home through an unlocked back door and installed the devices in several rooms around the home. Pelgrift inadvertently captured images of himself installing the cameras, according to police.

Pelgrift and the victim knew each other, police said.

Pelgrift was arrested Wednesday. He was released on a $75,000 bond and is next due in court on Nov. 8, 2018.
