Man put hidden camera in bathroom of Paramus, Wayne homes, police say

CLOSE

When someone is arrested and charged with a crime in New Jersey, police departments observe a protocol that includes the reading of Miranda Rights.

A West New York contractor was charged with invasion of privacy after he admitted to putting a camera in the bathrooms of homes in Paramus and Wayne, police said. 

Romeo Sanchez, 47, admitted to police that he put the cameras in the bathrooms after the Paramus resident reported a suspicious electronic device in their bathroom on Aug. 25, Paramus Police Chief Kenneth Ehrenberg said in a statement. 

Police found it to be a “micro” camera with a memory card in one of the walls of the bathroom, the statement said, where the memory card had video clips of the bathroom and a bathroom at a different location.

Sanchez was identified by the resident as a contractor they hired to replace a window, where Sanchez said he didn’t finish and needed to come back, the statement said.

Police located Sanchez, who confessed to putting the camera in the Paramus home and planned to get it back when he came to “finish his job,” police said. Sanchez also identified the videos of the different location as a home in Wayne.
