SEARCY, Ark. (AP) - A former Arkansas camp director accused of video voyeurism is now facing two more charges after footage included an adult woman and a 10-year-old girl.

The Daily Citizen reports that prosecutors issued a warrant on the video voyeurism charges May 25 for Robert Powell. The 45-year-old Searcy man was initially charged with one count, but prosecutors have now added two more. They also issued orders Friday against Powell prohibiting contact with involved individuals.

Wyldewood Camp fired Powell as director after authorities in April found a recording device inside a woman's cabin. Authorities say the camera contained several video clips with the adults and juvenile "in various stages of undress."

The White County Sheriff's Office says Powell confessed to concealing the camera to target a woman.

Powell was released on bail and will appear in court Tuesday.
