Man charged with putting hidden camera in Albion family's bathroom

A Rochester man faces 14 felony charges after police say he placed a hidden camera in the bathroom of an Albion family's home.

Jeremy Cooper, 40, was charged with 14 counts of second-degree unlawful surveillance, Albion Police Chief Roland D. Nenni III said.

Cooper is accused of hiding a small, motion-activated camera on a bathroom shelf. During a verbal dispute, he allegedly told the residents he had hidden a camera somewhere in the home, but would not specify where, Nenni said.

There was no indication of who or what Cooper was trying to record, but there was nothing that showed he was targeting children living in the home, the police chief said.

The 14 separate counts stem from the number of instances a person was recorded going in or out of the bathroom over the period of about one day, Nenni said.
