SOMERVILLE, MA (WHDH) - Somerville Police charged a 32-year-old man with secretly recording at a least a dozen women.
Teddy Browar-Jarus, 32, of Cambridge, was arraigned in Middlesex Superior court on 26 charges of secretly recording an unsuspecting nude person.
According to police, he did it for years until he was caught.
“When I came home in the evening the detectives were upstairs in the apartment, searching the apartment, gathering evidence,” said Jo Trigilio, a former neighbor of the suspect.
Two of the suspected neighbors said they watched as the suspect went to the police station after his female roommates accused him of hiding a camera in her bedroom.
He had hidden a camera in one of the roommate’s bookcases. She heard an alarm go off in the morning and found the camera,” said Jessica Nelson, a former neighbor of the suspect.
The Middlesex County District Attorney said police searched and found multiple recording devices including a camera hidden in a bathroom hook.
The DA said a forensic search of his laptop unveiled dozens of videos of naked women, some in the bathroom and other engaged in sexual activity.
“Everybody felt violated,” said Trigilio.
The investigation revealed 13 female victims, from two separate apartments, some roommates and others were houseguests.
The videos went as far back as 2011.
The people living in the Somerville duplex said they immediately kicked the suspect out.
Brower-Jarus was released on his own personal recognizance and is ordered to have no contact with the victims or witnesses or to publicly identify any of the victims. He’s scheduled to return to court on Oct. 7.
