A Hanover man allegedly hid a camera in his bathroom so he could watch his housekeeper use the toilet, according to charging documents.

Steven James Greenaway told police he put four cameras throughout his home so he could watch his cats, documents state.

Greenaway, 65, of the 200 block of Allegheny Avenue, has not yet been arraigned on his third-degree misdemeanor charge of invasion of privacy, court records state.


He has been sent a court summons, and his preliminary hearing is set for April 10 before District Judge Dwayne Dubs, according to court records.

Charging documents state that Hanover Police were called to Greenaway's home shortly before noon Sept. 14 by the woman who has cleaned his house for the past 15 years.

The woman told officers she saw Greenaway on his computer in his kitchen, watching a live-monitor feed of the bathroom camera.

Partially disrobed: She told officers she then found a camera in Greenaway's first-floor bathroom, directly facing the toilet, "where it is common practice for her to urinate during the day," documents state.

The housekeeper said she didn't know the camera was there when she used the bathroom, according to police.

Police filed the charge on Thursday, Feb. 1.

Greenaway does not have an attorney listed in court records. His home phone was disconnected as of Friday, Feb. 2.
