New Kensington Police are investigating the presence of a hidden camera in the female employees' restroom at the Fuel Land gas station.

Police were called about the camera Monday, New Kensington police Chief Tom Klawinski confirmed Tuesday.

He said the camera was found at the service station/convenience store along Seventh Street at Linden Avenue.

Klawinski said the employee believed to be responsible for the camera has been fired.

"No one has been charged," the chief said, declining to give the man's name or home address.

A spokeswoman for Superior Petroleum, which owns the store, didn't return calls for comment on Tuesday.

Klawinski said the manager told a company representative that he had planted the camera because some items were being stolen from a nearby storage room.

Klawinski said he will take part in the investigation because of his training and experience dealing with computer crimes.
