TALLMADGE, Ohio– A Tallmadge man, who was the former manager of Romeo’s Pizza in Twinsburg, was sentenced Wednesday to spend the next four years behind bars.

Paul Strebler, 34, set up a hidden camera in the restaurant’s bathroom and recorded several of his female employees; some of them were under the age of 18 at the time.  Strebler is now a Tier II sex offender, meaning he will have to register with the local sheriff every six months for the next 25 years.

“Paul Strebler violated his victims and destroyed their sense of privacy. This has become a living nightmare for the girls involved. Many of the victims worked for Mr. Strebler and trusted him. I am pleased to know the community will be kept safe from the deviant actions of Mr. Strebler,” said Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh .

Authorities said Strebler took off to Arizona following the allegations, and was taken into custody at the Grand Canyon standing on the edge of the abyss back in May. Negotiators were called in to talk him off the ledge.
