Police: Restaurant manager hid camera in bathroom

BAINBRIDGE ISLAND — A Bainbridge Island restaurant manager has been charged with voyeurism after authorities say he hid a camera in a bathroom.

The Kitsap Sun reports that Scott Fuchs was arrested and charged this week. The newspaper says Fuchs was previously charged with voyeurism under similar circumstances in 2007 while he worked at a Bremerton golf range. That case was dropped after key evidence was dismissed.

In the current case, authorities say a Doc’s Marina Grill employee discovered a smartphone concealed in a bathroom. The phone was recording video at the time.

Authorities say the recording occurred in an employee bathroom. Bainbridge Police Chief Matt Hamner says detectives do not have evidence of Fuchs filming other workers.
