Police: Handyman arrested for allegedly placing camera in customer’s bathroom

Click here for updates on this story

    Paramus, NJ (WCBS) — Paramus police have arrested a handyman for allegedly placing a hidden camera in a customer’s bathroom and said he didn’t just do it in their town.

They are asking local residents if they remember hiring him before, CBS2’s Alice Gainer reported Wednesday.

It looks like a regular charger, but if you look closely, “It’s got the pinhole camera right there. It’s motion-activated audio and video recording,” Det. Mark Pinajian said.

When pried open, “There’s an SD card slot there,” Pinajian said.

Paramus police said a woman found the device in her bathroom.

“Noticed it plugged into the outlet, knowing her home and that it didn’t belong to her,” Pinajian said.

When she opened it and watched what was on the card, “Saw clips on there, especially of her bathroom and herself,” Pinajian said.

And it didn’t just happen to her.

“There was another location on that camera,” Pinajian said.

That location was another bathroom in Wayne. That alleged incident was also caught on the camera the handyman was hired by the woman to fix a window. Police arrested 47-year-old Romeo Sanchez of West New York, a married father.

Police said he admitted to doing it and planned to retrieve the device when he returned to finish his work. They said there’s no evidence he distributed the video to anyone and added there were no kids in either home.

“As far as we can see, he’s not a licensed contractor. He’s just like a handyman to do small odds and ends jobs and he was being referred to other people. That’s how he was getting business,” Pinajian said.

More people have called police now concerned that they, too, may have been a victim.

“If you have somebody in your home,

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.

Tulsa Resident Captures Contractor Using Homophobic Slurs on Camera [Video]

A resident of Tulsa, Oklahoma, was shocked when he heard a contractor working for the City of Tulsa Water Department use homophobic slurs outside his home on October 2.

Bobby Elder’s security cameras captured the offensive language as the man, who was working on the water main near his home, approached saying, “This is a whole house full of them … a bunch of dope-smoking queers.”

He continues with the offensive remarks as he walks up the steps, saying, “We’re going to shut your water off at 8.30. Get all your group showers done by then.”

Elder told local media outlet KTUL after his partner answered the door they checked the surveillance footage to have a closer listen to what they thought they heard.

“Unfortunately, it was what we heard, and also much more,” Elder told KTUL.

In the same interview, he said he’s lived in the area most of his life and never had a problem.

The Director of Communications for the City of Tulsa, Michelle Brooks, told Storyful the person was not a City of Tulsa employee, but was “an employee of a contractor working on a waterline replacement project for the City’s utility authority.”

In the same statement, the city condemned the offensive remarks, saying, “The behavior displayed by this individual was ignorant and reprehensible and does not reflect the City’s values of diversity, inclusion, and respect for all of the constituents we serve. The City has talked to the contractor and this individual was removed immediately from all City projects.” Credit: Bobby Elder via Storyful
