ARLINGTON, Mass. (AP) — A New Hampshire man has been charged with secretly recording women in a bathroom at a Massachusetts cafe, and authorities say they’re investigating whether he planted cameras at other restaurants.
Police arrested 53-year-old Joseph Hennessey of Salem, New Hampshire, on Saturday at the Kickstand Cafe in Arlington, Massachusetts, after cafe workers called authorities to report a suspicious person. Police say they found a camera hidden in a flower basket in the bathroom.
Police say Hennessey works for the Arlington public works department and has been out on worker’s compensation.
Hennessey is detained without bail on charges including violating the state’s recent “upskirting” law. He’s set to be arraigned in District Court in Medford on Monday. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
