CHESTERFIELD, Mo. (KSDK) – Police are combing over video and trying to identify the people caught on a camera placed by an officer in a grate in a gas station bathroom.
Police say Officer David Cerna put the camera above a toilet at the Mobil on the Run gas station at Clarkson Square. Investigators say he then put the video online.
That site is now gone, but Chesterfield Police Captain Steve Lewis says detectives are trying to figure out who is in the videos.
"We empathize completely the potential to be a victim here can run across any number of persons," he said.
Lewis says if you're worried that you've been caught on camera, call the police department.
They'll take your name, phone number and personal information as part of the investigation.
Cerna, a six-year veteran of the department, faces a felony charge for invasion of privacy. He is currently being held on a $25,000 bond.
Police say he's no longer employed with the department.
A media investigation tipped off the department that someone had been recording a men's restroom, Johnson said. The investigation found a website where the person had posted video of the restroom, and that lead investigators to a St. Charles County home owned by Cerna.
