Teacher Arrested for Allegedly Recording Faculty Bathroom with Hidden Camera

A New Jersey teacher is under arrest for allegedly hiding a camera in a faculty bathroom at an elementary school, though authorities said no children appear to have been filmed.

Parsippany-Troy Hills Police said a school employee found the device inside the bathroom on Thursday, and an investigation "determined that the recording device was capturing footage of the toilet area and was placed there for an undetermined amount of time."

The investigation quickly led to physical education teacher Christopher Esnes, 40, of Gillette, who was arrested and charged with third-degree invasion of privacy.

A police spokesman declined to elaborate on how they determined so quickly that the camera allegedly belonged to Esnes. 

Esnes was not immediately reachable for comment.
