Joseph Krenicky of Glenwood is facing up to 25 years in prison after an unidentified Sussex County resident discovered a spy cam in his home. Krenicky was hired by the man to do electrical work in a bathroom in his home. Police were called to the home after the resident reported a "suspicious incident" on November 9th. The incident turned out to be a black box on a sink counter covered by tools but facing the shower stall. When the resident took a closer look at the box labeled "power bank" he saw a mirco SD card inside the box. Micro SD cards are used to store videos and photos.
The resident confronted Krenicky when he returned to continue his work on the home but the electrician denied the box belonged to him. Then Krenicky left. State police were called to the home took the device and viewed what was on the SD card. According to the state police the video showed Krenicky staging the camera and facing it toward the shower stall.
After viewing the contents of the entire SD card additional recordings of a male resident of the home in the bathroom were discovered. Police then obtained a search warrant for Krenicky's residence and truck. Additional recordings were taken as evidence. Those recordings showed three other members of the household in the bathroom. One of them was a minor.
Police brought Krenicky in for questioning and their affidavit states he has admitted to making the videos for sexual gratification. One of the videos from December of last year allegedly shows a minor engaged in a sexual act. Krenicky's next court date is December 10th in Newton. He has no prior arrests and is currently being held in the Sussex County jail.
