    A local man is alleged to have set up a camera in the women’s bathroom at his former Powell workplace, capturing images of four of his female co-workers in states of undress.

    Fifty-year-old Scott G. Abraham, who lives between Lovell and Byron, was arrested on the allegations Wednesday and made bail on Friday. He’s facing six felony charges.

    An investigation by Powell police concluded that Abraham staged a camera in the women’s bathroom at the building where he worked on at least two occasions: in August 2018 — when he secretly photographed four women using the toilet — and again this past June, when an employee spotted the camera as she changed clothes.

    Abraham allegedly admitted to placing the camera when confronted by his boss and then Powell police in mid-June.

    “… I was stupid enough to put a camera in the women’s bathroom as an experiment, I guess you would say,” he told Powell Police Investigator Chris Wallace, according to an affidavit Wallace submitted in support of the case.

    The affidavit quotes Abraham as saying that — while he knew it was wrong — he hadn’t intended to get pictures of women while they undressed, while they were fully naked or while they were going to the bathroom.

    However, Abraham allegedly added that, “I was obviously expecting something, underwear or something” and that “obviously, I was hoping to get something out of it.”
