A Veteran Affairs employee was arrested Wednesday for allegedly hiding cameras in women’s bathrooms at a VA office in Washington.

The suspect, Alex Greenlee, is charged with four counts of voyeurism.

According to the arrest warrant, a woman found a micro camera “surreptitiously hidden” under the bathroom stall next to the one she was using on January 25. She said she saw Greenlee hanging around outside the bathroom on his phone, and he asked her if everything was okay. He then tried to enter the women’s bathroom, claiming to get paper towels, according to the document.

The police found another camera hidden in the same bathroom on January 28. After reviewing the recordings, investigators identified Greenlee as the suspect placing the cameras under the toilets, according to the arrest warrant.

The cameras had recorded five women, one of them multiple times. The fifth victim couldn’t be identified.
