A Coral Springs man was arrested last week for filming his coworkers as they used the bathroom in their Coconut Creek workplace, court records show.
Kyle Conze, 27, of 3115 Coral Hills Dr., was charged with video voyeurism on Sept. 6 after a female colleague of Conze’s at Ice Mig, a wholesale liquidation company at 6601 Lyons Rd., discovered a small portable camera hidden inside a box of bandages in the business bathroom, according to an arrest affidavit.
The woman told her supervisor about the camera, which was wrapped in toilet paper and secured with tape, its lens pointed directly at the toilet, records show.
The female supervisor checked the camera’s footage and found 21 videos of fellow workers, both male, and female, using the toilet in states of undress, according to the records.
The supervisor grew “alarmed and panicked” at what she saw and deleted all but the first video, which showed Conze’s face as he positioned and angled the camera, the affidavit states.
Coconut Creek Police were called and interviewed Conze, who admitted to placing the camera in the bathroom one month earlier because “he had problems” that were “sexual” in nature, according to the records.
He told police he was a “sick” person and had been transferring the videos to his Dell laptop computer at home, the affidavit states. He said he never posted any of the videos online or showed them to anyone.
Records show Conze was booked into the Broward Main Jail and released on a $5,000 bond.
