ROWAN COUNTY, NC (WBTV) - A China Grove man is facing multiple charges after allegedly secretly videotaping a 9-year-old girl while she was in the bathroom.

According to the Rowan County Sheriff's Office, Mitchell Perry Wright set up a camera in his home on Myrtle Goodnight Road. 

Deputies, along with the SBI and ICE, searched another home where Wright had moved. 

They say they found the recording showing the girl, along with other images of child pornography.

His bond went from $10,000 to $51,000.
