YPSILANTI, Mich. (WITI/CNN) -- An Ypsilanti restaurant says it was the victim of a high-tech Peeping Tom who’s accused of putting recording devices in its bathrooms.

Patrick Weaver, a manager at Ollie Food and Spirits in Ypsilanti, says in May one of their employees spotted what he thought was a USB charger in a bathroom outlet. The employee had been doing regular bathroom cleaning checks.

He then went to the other bathroom and noticed the same thing and thought there was something fishy about it.

That’s when Weaver says that the employee told the general manager and Ypsilanti police were called.

“They told us it was a recording device and that they had a lot of hours from other restaurants and here on it,” says Weaver.

According to court records, the suspect is 33-year-old Brad Szachta of Ypsilanti. He’s been charged with several felonies including six counts of capturing and distributing images of an unclothed person and two counts of using computers to commit a crime.

Szachta was released on a personal bond. He’s back in court next week for a competency hearing.
