ROCHESTER, N.H. — A former newspaper reporter accused of hiding a camera in a women’s bathroom at the building where he worked has been indicted.

Forty-five-year-old Conor Makem of Dover has been indicted on 19 charges of invasion of privacy and one charge of falsifying physical evidence.

Fosters Daily Democrat reports that Makem’s Irish passport has been seized and he’s signed a waiver of extradiction.

A woman discovered the camera on Oct. 7 in the Merchants’ Plaza building. Police say she showed it to Makem, who told her it wasn’t a camera and then threw it away.

Police later took his laptop, work computer and cell phone.

Makem was fired. It is not immediately known if he is being represented by a lawyer. A phone number listed for him is not in service.
