    Joseph Boucher is accused of using iPhone to record employees in the bathroom in Avon.

    An IT worker in Avon has been arrested, accused of recording and live-streaming people in the bathroom.

    Joseph Boucher, 36, of Kensington, is accused of placing his company-issued iPhone in a tissue box and recording people in a staff bathroom at Apple Health Care Inc. at 21 Waterville Road.

    Police said there was a small hole in the tissue box that that was placed on the back of a toilet and faced the toilet, bathroom area.

    When a female employee found the phone in April, it was recording and live-streaming video and audio to Boucher’s company-issued computer, police said.

    When his boss questioned him, Boucher admitted he did a "stupid thing," police said.

    Police said Boucher admitted to downloading an application to his iPhone so he could watch the video of the women in the restroom and told them this was the first time he filmed his coworkers. 

    When police searched Boucher's files, the found video from the bathroom showing three women, police said.
     
    Boucher was charged him with three counts of voyeurism and turned himself in on May 23. He was released on a $50,000 surety bond and is due in court on June 6.  

    He no longer works for Apple Health Care.

    "We were clearly shocked and saddened by this act," the company said in a release, "and we will do whatever it takes to ensure our employees have the support they need to move past this."

    Boucher's family did not comment on the allegations.
