Twinsburg -- Following reports from additional suspected victims who police believe were secretly videotaped in a restroom at Romeo's Pizza in Twinsburg, Paul M. Strebler, 33, of Tallmadge, was indicted by a Summit County grand jury June 17 on 14 counts of illegal use of a minor in nudity and voyeurism.

Strebler, who was a district manager with Romeo's and had managed the Twinsburg location for five years, was indicted on two second-degree felony counts of illegal use of a minor in nudity; one fifth-degree felony count of voyeurism; and 11 misdemeanor counts of voyeurism (first and second degree).

A pretrial has been scheduled for Aug. 12 at 2 p.m. before Summit County Court of Common Pleas Judge Lynne S. Callahan.

Strebler's attorney, Kirk A. Migdal, did not return a call seeking comment July 30.

Strebler was arrested in Arizona after warrants for his arrest were issued May 8. He was extradited in late May from Arizona, after police say he threatened suicide at the edge of the Grand Canyon.

According to Twinsburg detectives, the video camera Strebler allegedly used to record women in the restroom was hidden inside a tool kit bag in the women's restroom of the pizza shop.

Twinsburg detectives say they were contacted May 7 by Strebler's wife who said she found images and videos of young females in various states of undress on the family computer. Strebler's wife said she believed the images and videos were secretly recorded from inside the Twinsburg store's restroom.

Detectives raided Strebler's residence in Tallmadge shortly thereafter and recovered a flash drive and SD card containing the images and videos.

Assistant Twinsburg Police Chief Bob Gonsiewski said more than 15 potential victims came forward in the matter.
