Priest Arrested On Felony Charges

Dec 24, 2015

A priest who leads an Episcopal parish in suburban Albany has been charged with secretly videotaping a woman in a store dressing room.

Colonie police say 35-year-old Adam Egan was charged with two felonies after a customer at a Salvation Army store noticed a camera peeking over a dressing room curtain and called police.

Colonie police confirmed Egan is rector at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in Delmar.

After his arrest Wednesday evening, Egan was arraigned and taken to Albany County Correctional Facility without bail to await a Dec. 28 court appearance.

It could not be determined if he has a lawyer.
