The incidents took place at an apartment building on Franklin Street in Greenpoint, where Tamborski was also the superintendent.

Authorities said the latest victim suspected someone was going into her bedroom without permission, so she installed a security camera. When she reviewed the footage, she noticed an infrared light, which appeared to be a hidden camera.
Police found several items that either contained or were capable of containing a recording device, including two cellphones, an alarm clock, an air freshener, and a SONOS speaker.
The victim told police Tamborski insisted the clock, air freshener and speaker stay in the bathroom at all times.MORE NEWS: COVID In New York: Mask Mandates Not Being Re-Imposed Just Yet As Concern Grows Over Delta Variant
