Cambridge Man Arraigned for Alleged Indecent Secretly Recordings In Somerville 

WOBURN – Middlesex County District Attorney Marian Ryan has announced that Teddy Browar-Jarus, 32, of Cambridge, was arraigned today in Middlesex Superior Court and charged with 26 counts of secretly recording an unsuspecting nude person, 11 counts of willful recording of oral communication, and one count of attempting to video record an unsuspecting person in a state of nudity.
Clerk Magistrate Matthew Day released the defendant on personal recognizance and ordered the defendant to have no contact with the victims or witnesses, and to not publicly identify any of the victims. The next scheduled hearing in this case is Friday, October 7.
In 2015, a former roommate of the defendant awoke hearing an unfamiliar beeping sound. When she approached the bookshelf in her bedroom she allegedly found a cell phone with its camera facing the bed with the name “Teddy” on the home screen.
Authorities executed a search warrant on the defendant’s bedroom where police allegedly found multiple recording devices, including a laptop computer and a hook camera, a camera that is similar in appearance to a plastic hook used to hang towels or robes in a bathroom, but with a hidden camera inside. A forensic search of the defendant’s laptop resulted in the discovery of dozens of videos of women in a state of undress; some in the bathroom, others engaged in sexual activity, as well as several female roommates in various state of undress in their own bedrooms. Many videos also included the recording of conversations. The investigation allegedly showed that the hook camera had been installed in the bathrooms of two Somerville apartments to record women entering and exiting the shower. The police also located videos created through the use of smart phones and a laptop computer.  
The Somerville police were able to identify twelve women depicted in the videos who were recorded in Middlesex County, in addition to the reporting party. All women stated that they had not given permission for, nor did they have knowledge of, the video and audio recordings. The videos were allegedly taken in the years 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2015.  
These charges are allegations and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
The prosecutor assigned to this case is Assistant District Attorney Kristen Noto. The Victim Witness Advocate is Andrew Lauranzano.
