A California man has been arrested for allegedly possessing more than 900 images of child pornography after his wife found a hidden camera in their home and contacted authorities.
Ryan Rovito, 34, was confronted by his wife on March 8 after discovering the camera in the guest bathroom of their home, according to the Redding Police Department. He admitted to knowing about the camera and said he would throw it away, but his wife grabbed it and the hard drive it was connected to.
His wife contacted the police as he feared he had registered their young children in the toilet.
