Police in El Paso arrested their colleague, Gilberto Hilario Silva, 28, on Dec. 15 and charged him with one count each of attempted invasive visual recording, and indecency with a child by exposure — both felonies — as well as misdemeanor counts of breach of computer security, and unauthorized use or release of criminal information, police said, the El Paso Times reported.

According to officials, on May 1, the Special Investigations Unit launched the investigation into the alleged recording “that occurred in the female locker room of the Westside Regional Command Center.”

Silva was released on a $50,000 bond from the El Paso County jail, and the three-year veteran of the force was placed on administrative leave.

According to the El Paso Times, Silva previously pleaded not guilty to a charge of assault of a pregnant person after an arrest in April 2021. The case was dismissed in May after the complaining witness requested dismissal.
