ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – A cafeteria worker at a Florida child care center is facing a video voyeurism charge after his co-workers found a cellphone taped under the sink and facing the toilet in a bathroom.

St. Petersburg police arrested Julin Nichols, 30, on Monday. He had worked at the Lew Williams Center for Early Learning for a month.

Police didn't say whether any children were involved in the investigation, or how many people were recorded by the phone. An investigation is continuing.

Nichols was released on a surety bond early Tuesday. Jail records did not list a lawyer for him.
