Easton EMS volunteer accused of voyeurism appears in court

Posted: Updated:
EASTON -

A former Easton EMS volunteer made his first court appearance Thursday on charges including voyeurism, stealing firearms and impersonating law enforcement.

Christopher Barlow was a student at Sacred Heart University and part of the Easton EMS Live-In program at the time of the alleged crime.

The court hearing lasted less than a minute. Barlow had no comment after he heard the accusations against him, but his arrest warrant offers new insight into the case.

Police say Barlow took photos of two female patients under his care in the ambulance, even pulling down the shirt of one to expose her chest while she was unconscious.

They say he also recovered videos from a hidden camera Barlow set up in the men's bathroom at the EMS building and recorded his colleagues without their knowledge.

Court documents also state he stole two guns from a co-worker and forged the Easton police chief's signature to fraudulently make two police IDs for himself.

Police say they also found a stockpile of weapons, ammunition, explosives and several fake law enforcement badges inside his room in his Duxbury, Massachusetts home.

Barlow was in jail in Massachusetts until February when he was released on bond, but he had to wear a GPS ankle monitor.

He is due in court in Bridgeport on these charges later this month.
