A man who entered a neighbor's home through an unlocked door and allegedly installed video cameras in four spots in the home has been arrested by police.

Christopher Pelgrift, 57, of Salisbury, was arrested Tuesday after the woman called the police and they responded to the home in Salisbury, said Connecticut State Police.

An investigation revealed that Pelgrift had entered the home and installed the videos cameras while the woman was not home. She happened to notice a camera and called the police, state police said.

Pelgrift was taken into custody and charged with burglary, breach of peace, voyeurism with malice, criminal attempt to commit voyeurism with malice (three counts), and stalking.

He was released on a $75,000 bond and is next due in court on Nov. 8.
