A former manager of the Brazos Valley Bombers is behind bars, accused of secretly video taping several of his female employees while they were changing.
Kfir Jackson, 32, was arrested Friday. He is charged with five counts of improper photography or visual recording.
According to Bryan police, Jackson asked several female employees to change into some uniforms he was considering them wearing for their job. The victims became suspicious they were being videotaped and called police.
Bryan police say on Wednesday, the Criminal Investigation Division executed a search warrant at 405 Mitchell St. in Bryan. That's listed as the Brazos Valley Bombers' office. Several electronic items including computers were seized. These items were forensically analyzed at the Bryan Police Department. Images found on the hard drive of one of Jackson's computers were consistent with the victims account.
According to an email from Uri Geva, the owner of the Brazos Valley Bombers, Jackson has voluntarily stepped down from his role in day-to-day management of the bombers as he attends to these matters.
Geva said that the organization will remain in good hands.
Uri Geva also released this statement Friday night, "In regards to Mr. Jackson’s alleged allegations, I would respond that the Bombers are more than just one person, and are about a mission statement that is affordable family fun. As an organization we were shocked of these allegations and have taken the necessary steps to ensure another successful season is on the way and we will continue being a large part of the community. We are excited about the upcoming 2011 TCL All-Star Game and another playoff run and are thankful for all the support of the community."

The investigation is ongoing and additional charges against Jackson are possible.
