    Marco Dias is accused of putting a "spy cam" in a Subway bathroom.

    Connecticut police arrested a Darien Subway employee accused of secretly recording people in the bathroom of the restaurant.

    Police received a complaint on Wednesday that a “spy camera” had been installed in the unisex bathroom of Subway at 22 Heights Road in Darien.

    Cops reviewed the camera footage and said it showed three people had been unknowingly captured on video.

    Also captured on the camera was Marco Dias, 21, of Bridgeport, a Subway employee suspected of setting up the camera, police said.

    Police obtained a warrant and took Dias into custody at the restaurant at 1:15 p.m. on Thursday, charging with three counts of voyeurism, a Class D Felony.  

    Dias was held on a $25,000 bond, but police said that Dias is in the United States illegally and the department contacted the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. Dias has since been detained by federal authorities. 

    Dias had no prior criminal history, police said.  After his arrest, police searched Dias’ house and said they found an additional “spy” type camera and computer equipment.  Officers will examine the evidence as the investigation continues.
