LEBANON, Ohio (AP) – A maintenance worker suspected of installing video recording equipment in female residents’ bathrooms at a southwest Ohio apartment complex has been charged with voyeurism and burglary.
Warren County’s prosecutor says 65-year-old Gerald Rowe was indicted on nine felony counts of burglary, five misdemeanor counts of voyeurism and a felony charge of having criminal tools.
Court records listed no attorney for the Milford man.
Prosecutor David Fornshell alleges Rowe misused his job as a maintenance worker at a Deerfield Township community to access female residents’ homes and put recording equipment in their restrooms in February and March. Fornshell says the case began when a resident discovered a camera in an overhead vent in her restroom.
Rowe’s arraignment is scheduled Aug. 26.
