SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - A New York doctor is accused of hiding two surveillance cameras in a bathroom of a hospital’s intensive care unit.

Thirty-two-year-old Jeffrey Gould has been charged with unlawful surveillance stemming from the March 1 discovery of two “spy pens” in a bathroom at Crouse Hospital in Syracuse. Police say one camera was taped to the side of a trash can and the other was on a toilet paper dispenser.

Defense attorney Edward Menkin tells The Post-Standard of Syracuse that Gould hid the cameras to try to catch the person who he says stole his prescription medication and a camera.

Menkin says his client used “terrible judgment,” but didn’t intend to invade anyone’s privacy.

He says Gould has since been fired.
