MTA police busted a janitor for using a cell phone hidden in a bathroom stall to videotape more than a dozen women using the toilet at the Stamford train station.
Felicitos Gonzalez, who lives a block away from the bustling Metro-North facility, was arrested at his home and charged with 16 counts of voyeurism, the Stamford Advocate first reported on its Web site. The perverted scheme was unraveled after a woman found the camera inside a basket of toilet paper and contacted the MTA police. Gonzalez could still face additional charges.
The 41-year-old man worked for Fusco Management since August and maintained the station on behalf of the state’s Department of Transportation.
The phone contained video of 16 women using the bathroom, as well as Gonzalez as he allegedly placed the phone in the basket, the Advocate reported.
Gonzalez is in the country illegally, the Advocate reported, and police have contacted the U.S. Immigration, Customs, and Enforcement Agency in Hartford. Gonzalez was arraigned in state Superior Court in Stamford early Thursday afternoon.
