The manager of a New Kensington gas station told police that he installed a web camera above the toilet at the BP Fueland in July 2012 in an effort to thwart thefts from the employee restroom.

Police, though, suspected Randall McDade had other intentions and accused him of attempting to take intimate pictures of employees at the Seventh Street station.

McDade on Tuesday pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct after Westmoreland County prosecutors dropped a more serious charge of invasion of privacy.

Judge Rita Hathaway sentenced McDade, 56, of New Kensington, to serve one year of probation and ordered that he undergo an evaluation to determine if he needs sex offender treatment.

According to court records, police found a laptop computer at McDade's home, but Assistant District Attorney Mike Pacek said there was no evidence of any pictures or videos found.

“There were no victims,” Pacek said.
