OLD WESTBURY VILLAGE, N.Y. (AP) - A professor at the New York Institute of Technology has been arrested on charges he placed a camera disguised as a pen in a bathroom at the school’s Old Westbury Village, Long Island campus.

Police say 39-year-old Jackie Conrad, of New York City, was arraigned Thursday on charges of unlawful surveillance.

He was arrested after a person reported finding a pen with recording capabilities in a handicap-accessible bathroom on the third floor of the Kenneth Riland Building. Police believe the camera had been in the bathroom for several hours.

A school spokeswoman released a statement saying Conrad, who was a professor in the anatomy department, was no long an employee.

Conrad’s lawyer, Kevin Keating, told Newsday (https://nwsdy.li/29GWARQ ) his client had an “exemplary personal and professional relationship.”
