Working at a fast-food Chinese eatery in Valenica is probably not tops for thrills, unless you've got a little secret stashed away on the job. Such was the case for Diego Ortiz of Santa Clarita, who "was arrested Friday and charged with making pictures of female co-workers undressing in a restroom" at the Hungry Ninja in Valencia, explains the Signal. Ortiz was busted "after a female co-worker discovered a cell phone video camera hidden in the employee's restroom and made a report at the Sheriff's station." Ortiz had stashed the camera "in a box behind a pinhole," according to the authorities. He has been released and is awaiting his court appearance.
