A Long Island man allegedly hid a camera inside his landlord’s bathroom and collected “private images” of her family, according to police.
Cristian Marca, 37, was arrested Saturday morning and charged with two counts of unlawful surveillance, Suffolk County Police said.
His landlord called the cops on Thursday after finding a miniature video camera in the bathroom of her East Patchogue home.
Investigators determined that Marca, her tenant, was allegedly behind the sick spyware.
The creep was “found to be in possession of video and private images of the residents of the house,” cops said.
Four children and two other adults lived at the Case Avenue home.
Police said Marca was not related to the family in any way and did not know them prior to renting the room. It’s unclear how long he had been a tenant there.
He was arraigned in First District Court in Central Islip on Sunday and released with a temporary order of protection issued, according to Newsday.
His next court date is set for May 25.
