Fosters Daily Democrat reports that Makem’s Irish passport has been seized and he’s signed a waiver of extradiction.

A woman discovered the camera on Oct. 7 in the Merchants’ Plaza building. Police say she showed it to Makem, who told her it wasn’t a camera and then threw it away.

Police later took his laptop, work computer and cell phone.

Makem was fired. It is not immediately known if he is being represented by a lawyer. A phone number listed for him is not in service.
