Cops: NY man snapped self planting locker room cam

Police: NY college worker photographed himself planting hidden camera in women's locker room By The Associated Press

TROY, N.Y. (AP) ' New York police say a college employee inadvertently photographed himself planting a motion-activated camera in a women's locker room at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

They tell local media that 56-year-old Thomas McMartin, of Hoosick Falls, was arrested Friday and pleaded not guilty to felony charges of unlawful surveillance and burglary. McMartin declined to comment.

The college says he was fired from his job as a heating and cooling supervisor and barred from the upstate New York campus soon after the camera was found.

Troy police Capt. John Cooney says the camera was installed March 8. It captured still images of several women changing before one of them noticed something wrong with the ceiling.

He says there's no evidence of any earlier spying or other cameras, but the investigation is continuing.
