SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A Sacramento police officer has been arrested after an investigation into allegations he was secretly filming women during intimate encounters.
The Sacramento Police Department says Officer Benjamin Gray had been on admirative leave, with his peace officer powers suspended, since January 2022 after the Folsom Police Department alerted them of their investigation.
Investigators had previously said they found images of potential victims.
On Monday, Sacramento police announced that an arrest warrant had been issued for Gray. He turned himself in at Sacramento County Mail Jail on Monday.
Police say Gray's administrative leave will continue as the case goes through the judicial system.
"As peace officers we should hold ourselves to the highest standards, both on and off-duty. This alleged criminal behavior is both disturbing and unacceptable and weakens the trust between law enforcement and the community, which we work so hard every day to build and maintain," said Chief Katherine Lester, in a statement.
Folsom police have urged anyone who was in a relationship with Gray over the last three years and feels like they may have been victimized to contact them.
