Press Release, Orleans County Sheriff’s Office
ALBION – The Orleans County Sheriff’s Office on Friday arrested an Albion man on felony charges related to the unlawful videotaping of minor children.
Undersheriff Christopher M. Bourke reports that Andrew C. Campbell, 32, of Albion was charged with two counts of unlawful surveillance in the second degree (felony) and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child. This arrest is the result of a three-month investigation by the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office and the Albion Police Department.
The current charges allege that Campbell was secretly videotaping minors including children 13 and 14 years of age. Based on the evidence recovered at this point, Campbell has been allegedly performing this type of unlawful surveillance for many years, Bourke said.
The Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant and numerous electronic devices were recovered including phones, laptops, hard drives and external storage devices. The Western New York Computer Forensic Laboratory is currently conducting an analysis of the evidence and more charges are likely.
This investigation is being led by O.C.S.O. Investigator Jeff Gifaldi, assisted by Inv. Shannon Brett, Inv. Ken Strickland and the Albion Police Dept. Anyone with information regarding this case, may call 585-590-4125.
Campbell was arraigned by Justice Joseph Fuller in the Town of Albion Court. Bail was set at $10,000 cash and $20,000 Bond. Campbell is scheduled to return to court on Nov. 7 at 9 a.m.
