    A Southwest Airlines employee was arrested for voyeurism on Sunday morning at Sea-Tac Airport.

    A witness told KIRO-7 he saw Port of Seattle police officers surround the suspect and put him in handcuffs near gate B-9  around 11:30 a.m.

    The suspect, Nicholas Williams, 25,  who works for Southwest Airlines was booked for investigation of voyeurism.

    He was booked in to the King County Jail and appeared before a judge Monday afternoon.

    Prosecutors say Williams put a camera in a bathroom at the gates that children sometimes use on their own. 

    Investigators say Williams admitted he had done it four or five times before.

    KIRO 7 reached out to Southwest Airlines for comment and was sent a statement:

    "We will work with the appropriate authorities as they investigate an accusation that involves one of our Seattle Employees. We do not have additional details to provide."

    Besides working for Southwest Airlines, Williams also volunteers at the Chehalis Centralia Railroad and Museum. He posted pictures on his Facebook page last Friday

    The judge set his bail at $90,000. If he gets out of jail, he is not allowed to have contact with children
