A recently resigned Waxahachie firefighter faces charges of taking non-consensual photos of men in a restroom at a local home improvement store after being arrested on the afternoon of July 30.
Glenn Morrill, 45, was taken into custody by Waxahachie police on a charge of invasive video recording, after police were sent to The Home Depot in the 1300 block of U.S. Highway 77 on a complaint that someone was taking pictures of men in a restroom.
Further investigation revealed that at least one photograph had been taken without the other person’s consent. Morrill faces a state jail felony punishable by up to two years of incarceration and a fine of up to $10,000.
Morrill had been on medical leave from the fire department for several weeks when the alleged incident occurred, according to media reports. Morrill resigned from the fire department on Aug. 3.
Morrill was promoted to the rank of Pump Engineer in 2017, according to Waxahachie Fire-Rescue. Morrill had a salary of $65,255, which is 35% higher than average and 51% higher than the median salary in the city of Waxahachie, according to govsalaries.com.
The investigation is ongoing and anyone with more information is asked to contact Detective Elizabeth Glidewell of the Waxahachie Police Department at 469-309-4400, police said.
