Police arrested Pedro Sanchez-Rodriguez, 34, after a uniformed officer used the bathroom at the Erie Basin Auto Pound in Red Hook Wednesday night, and noticed a cell phone hidden in the ceiling.
An investigation revealed Sanchez-Rodriguez, who works for Arizona Security, planted the phone there, and a search found pictures and videos of officers using the bathroom, cop sources said.
Police linked him to a second similar incident on July 18, cops said. He was also carrying liquid THC — a liquid form of cannabis often used in e-cigarettes, cops allege.
Sanchez-Rodriguez was arraigned Thursday and ordered held on $25,000 bond or $15,000 cash bail.
