ST. LOUIS (CBS St. Louis) – A former suburban St. Louis police officers is facing charges after allegedly making illegal recordings of men in a public restroom and posting them online.

Chesterfield Police Chief Ray Johnson said 33-year-old David Cerna confessed to planting the camera above the stall of a toilet at a Mobile on the Run station. “He indicated that he would place it and then go back in about two hours [later] when the battery ran down.”

Videos of men using the toilet were posted on a porn site, said Johnson.

Rob Cheney tells the station he was one of the men who was secretly recorded. “When I saw myself pooping, I was just like you’ve gotta be kidding me.”

Cheney says he will hunt for cameras before using a public restroom from now on. “I’m weird about going to the bathroom as it is,” he said. “So now you know if I have to go I’ll go, but I’ll be looking around the walls, that’s for sure.”

Cerna will face a grand jury next month. He is currently in a St. Charles County jail on invasion of privacy charges in two counties.
