A Male RPI Employee Hid A Camera In A Women’s Locker Room

A 56-year-old Hoosick Falls man turned himself into Troy Police Friday morning for installing a motion-sensitive video camera in a ceiling in a women’s locker room at RPI.

In a story from the Times Union, Thomas McMartin was a maintenance man that worked on the heating and air conditioning for the school, but he didn’t have any reason to go into the women’s locker room. The police confiscated the camera. When they started checking several of the pictures, they saw a picture of McMartin.

He allegedly put the camera in the locker room on March 8. A woman using the room the following day noticed that a ceiling tile didn’t look right, and then noticed the camera. McMartin was in Troy City Court and pleaded not guilty to felony counts of second-degree unlawful surveillance and third-degree burglary.

There was a statement released from RPI saying that McMartin was fired and barred from The RPI campus after the camera was found. The police found the camera in time, so none of the images made it to the internet.

CBS 6 is reporting that according to RPI, all facilities on the campus are being checked for other cameras. The issue is being sent to a grand jury and McMartin was released on $5000 bail.

This guy is far from being a class act. If he really needed to see these kind of things, he should’ve bought a magazine or find them online.
