    Howard County police are looking for a man who secretly videotaped two women in their condominium, entering the home several times to move the camera around.

    The women, who are roommates in Ellicott City, discovered the video camera hidden in a closet last month and notified authorities, police said.

    Officers found images of a man that show him setting up the camera. The camera was first set up in June in one of the bedrooms, detectives said, and over the next several months, the man went back into the condo several times to move the camera around.

    He apparently entered the residence during daytime.

    Police don't know how the man got into the condo. There were no signs of forced entry.

    The man is described as white, in his 30s, with a heavy build and bald on the top of his head. He wore the same clothes several times –-- a dark tan or light brown button up shirt and khaki shorts -- which could indicate it was a uniform, detectives said. Sometimes he wore a Baltimore Ravens hat.

    The culprit will face multiple charges of breaking and entering and videotaping a person in private without consent.

    Anyone with information about the case should call police at 410-313-3200.
