911 operator charged after camera found in urinal at local police department

NORTH VERSAILLES, Pa. — A 911 operator is accused of hiding a camera in a bathroom at the North Versailles Police Department.

In December, an officer found the camera, which was allegedly put in a urinal by John Logan, according to police. Detectives from the Allegheny County Police Department were then called to investigate.

The camera had an SD card in it and had been attached to an upper corner of the urinal, which was inside a bathroom set up for one person to use at a time, a criminal complaint said. The bathroom is in a hallway that is restricted to the public, requiring an access card.

While the incident was being investigated, Logan went into the bathroom and when he came out, the SD card was missing, police said.

Officers got warrants to search Logan’s home. Authorities said flash drives had several videos of North Versailles officers exposed while using the bathroom.

Logan, 49, was charged Wednesday with invasion of privacy and tampering with physical evidence.

“Everyone is always innocent until proven guilty,” Logan’s attorney, Phil DiLucente, said. “He has been a dedicated employee of North Versailles Township for over 20 years. He enjoyed his job he was well-liked by the people he worked with.”
