Mitchell Morreale, 45, was charged on Tuesday with invasion of privacy. The suspect is married to Kelli with whom he has two teenage sons; one of whom is underage. 

Lyndhurst Police Capt. John Valente says four female teenagers reported the videotaping Monday night. Their exact ages have not been divulged.

Valente says one of the teens was using Morreale's bathroom on Friday during a pool party with friends, including Morreale's 19-year-old son Michael.  

She noticed a light in a closet that turned out to be a recording device.

The girl called her friends to come and investigate the camera and they realized the device had been recording partygoers for about 30 minutes.

The teens recorded some of the footage with their cell phones, put it on a thumb drive, and handed it over to the police. 

Valente says Morreale recorded himself setting up the device.  Detectives confiscated the device and computer equipment.

The fire captain has been suspended by the Lyndhurst Fire Department pending the outcome of the case.

It has not been specified where Morreale is a football coach and if he has been removed from that position as well.
