JOHNSON COUNTY, Kan. – A tax lawyer faces charges for allegedly secretly filming women using the toilets in an office building.
Troy D. Renkemeyer, 51, is charged with one count of invasion of privacy by video or photo in Johnson County Court.
According to the affidavit, Renkemeyer owns the Renkemeyer law firm in Overland Park. The company operated in a shared business space.
On September 28, a woman using the building’s toilet said she discovered a “block-shaped object” on a table in the room.
The next day, the woman told police she noticed a camera attached to the bottom of the table, pointed directly at the toilet. The woman told police she noticed two micro SD cards in the camera and went to Target to purchase an SD card reader.
According to court documents, the woman told police she viewed the video on SD cards and it contained footage of her and other women using the toilet. She told officers the footage also showed Renkemeyer setting up the camera.
A police officer viewed the footage and determined that it showed Renkemeyer setting up the camera. The officer watched until they saw a woman being filmed as she used the toilet.
None of the women consented to be filmed, according to the affidavit.
Renkemeyer released himself from Johnson County Jail for $ 2,500. He is due to appear at a preliminary hearing on December 16.
An attorney for Renkemeyer said it was their policy not to comment on matters involving their clients, except as necessary under Kansas rules of professional conduct.
