Police in New Jersey have arrested a medical center employee after cameras were found hidden in the women’s restroom.
Police in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, arrested David B. Leftridge, 57, and charged him with both invasion of privacy and tampering with evidence after the cameras were reported by female employees of the DaVita Dialysis Center.
Officials are not yet sure how long the cameras were hidden in the bathrooms or how much video footage Leftridge allegedly took from the cameras. They also did not announce how they initially made the connection between the suspect and the cameras.
Police carried out a search warrant at the suspect’s home and said they found additional evidence.
The medical center said it has terminated the man’s employment.
“We are actively assisting law enforcement in their investigation and have zero tolerance for any such alleged invasion of privacy,” a DaVita spokesman said in a statement. “We will take further action as appropriate once the facts in the matter have been determined.”
The suspect was being held as late as Wednesday at Burlington County Jail.
