YORK, ME (WGGB/WSHM/AP) -

Police have charged a Massachusetts man with installing hidden cameras in the bathrooms of a rental home to record friends and family.

York, ME Police said Tuesday they were called to a Nubble Road home earlier this month after "multiple covert and hidden cameras" were found in four of the bathrooms in the house by those who were renting the property.

"While investigating the crime, it was determined that a one of the actual renters of the house had placed the cameras in the bathrooms to video other friends and family that were staying there with him," police noted in a Facebook post.

Investigators noted that "victims include both children and adults."

Joseph McGrath, 32, of East Longmeadow was charged with violation of privacy.

It's unclear if McGrath has a lawyer. A phone message left by the Associated Press for a Joseph McGrath in Massachusetts was not immediately returned.

McGrath is scheduled to appear in York District Court on November 21.

The investigation remains ongoing by members of the York Police Department, along with law enforcement agencies in Massachusetts.  Anyone with information is asked to contact York Police at (207) 363-4444, the Seacoast Crime Stoppers at (207) 439-1199, or 'Text-a-Tip' to CRIMES (274637) and in the message, type TIPSCS and your tip.
