Window installer spied on N.J. family with camera he hid in bathroom, cops say

A home-improvement contractor was arrested after a Bergen County family he worked for said they found a small camera hidden in the wall of their bathroom, authorities said Wednesday.

Romeo Sanchez, 47, of West New York, was hired to replace a window in the family’s Paramus home in August, according to Police Chief Kenneth Ehrenberg.

After working in the home, Sanchez told family members he would return another time to finish putting in the window, Ehrenberg said.

One of the family members called police on Aug. 25 to report “they had found a suspicious electronic device” in the bathroom, Ehrenberg said.

“The device was later determined to be a micro camera with a micro SD memory card that had been secreted in the bathroom wall,” Ehrenberg said.

A police detective accessed the memory card and found video clips of the family’s bathroom along with videos of a bathroom in another home, Ehrenberg said.

Paramus police investigators said they tracked down Sanchez and interviewed him about the device on Sept. 17.

Sanchez admitted placing the camera in the family’s bathroom and that he had planned to retrieve it when he returned to finish the window job, Ehrenberg said.

The contractor also told investigators that the other bathroom videos were from a home in Wayne where he had also been hired to work, Ehrenberg said.

Sanchez was arrested, charged with one count of invasion of privacy and released pending a court hearing.

Police said they were able to identify victims in the other case and alerted the Wayne Police Department of their findings.

Paramus police are asking anyone with further information or who feels they may have been a victim to call Detective Mark Pinajian at 201-262-3400 ext. 1429.
