Police: Woodridge Chef Hid Camera in Naperville Restaurant Bathroom

The Woodridge man was arrested in mid-March and failed to appear for an April court date; police say they want to speak to any women who may have used the bathroom.

A cook at Taco Fresco in Naperville allegedly hid a camera phone in the restaurant's women's bathroom and covertly recorded women using the toilets, CBS Chicago reports.

Meliton Andrade, 44, of the 2500 block of Spring Street, Woodridge, was arrested on March 12 at his home. According to the Naperville Sun, he became a fugitive on April 4 when he failed to appear for his arraignment in Will County Court. CBS said they "tried unsuccessfully to track him down."

Naperville police told the Sun in March that a woman using the restroom had discovered the camera behind a "trap cover" on a bathroom door, and told CBS that it is unknown how long the camera may have been recording for. Police are interested in speaking with any women who may have used the bathroom, CBS said.

“It’s absolutely disgusting and humiliating to know that was going on,” Shannon Sutton, an employee at a neighboring business, told CBS. ”I think it’s disgusting and he should have to pay for what he did to people... Women bring their children in the bathroom all the time."

@Lisa - I'm sure he hopes the authority thinks like you do, while he enjoys his margarita in the next state over. I can't wait til they release a description of the Boston Bomber and catch him/her. I'd hate for every Saudi National to be taken to the ground by "perception".

not a racist comment, it is natural to assume he fled the country. Since 90% of the Hispanics here in Illinois have a Mexican Heritage, He hs a Spanish surname, and works in a Mexican Restaurant, this is called deductive reasoning. Do you even know what racism means? ANd D Smith, this guy was arrested, and fled, not the same thing as holding someone and releasing them later, as in the Saudi National's case
