NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A former officer with the Transportation Security Administration, who is accused of secretly videotaping a female co-worker inside an employee restroom at the Nashville International Airport, plead not guilty Wednesday morning .
Metro police began investigating Daniel Boykin, 33, of Murfreesboro, on May 30 after the alleged victim saw videos of herself on his phone and filed a complaint.
Officers executed a search warrant at Boykin’s home and found images and video of the victim on his computer, storage devices and phone.
Detectives believe Boykin had an infatuation with the victim. During the course of the investigation, they also learned that Boykin entered the victim’s Nashville home on multiple occasions during which he is alleged to have taken data from her computers and electronic devices.
Boykin is charged with unlawful photography, aggravated burglary, wiretapping, unlawful telephone recording and two computer crimes.
According to Metro police, the camera was recording while the victim was on her phone in the restroom, resulting in the unlawful telephone recording and wiretapping counts.
Boykin was arrested and booked into the Metro jail Monday. His bond was set at $100,000.
According to the TSA, Boykin resigned before he could be terminated when the investigation began.
In a statement released to News 2 Tuesday, TSA officials stated, “This individual is no longer employed by the agency. TSA holds its employees to the highest ethical standards and has zero tolerance for misconduct in the workplace.”
They also noted that Boykin worked in an administrative role and had no interaction with the general public, and that the restroom involved in the investigation was only open to TSA officials.
Boykin is due in court on October 29.
