PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A former pharmacist with Kaiser Permanente is facing 33 new charges on top of the 71 counts he was already facing after investigators say he put a camera at his new place of employment.

Johnny Chan, who previously was released from jail after posting $28,000 bail, is now behind bars after Multnomah County Circuit Court Chief Criminal Judge Cheryl Albrecht set his new bail at $2 million.

After Kaiser Permanente learned of the allegations and fired him November 14, Chan got a job at the Banana Republic store at Cascade Station in Northeast Portland.

He was arrested 12 days later at his new job. But he posted bail and was then re-arrested December 7 in Southeast Portland after further investigation.

When he was first taken into custody on November 26, authorities said they checked the employee-only bathroom at the store and found a concealed camera facing the toilet.

Court documents from December 6 revealed there were 173 videos of 27 different employees at Banana Republic, including 3 who are minors.

Those court documents also showed that while Chan was still at Kaiser Permanente, he put a tiny camera on his shoe and used it to take “up-skirt” photos of women.

The Multnomah County DA’s Office said there is no reason to believe any customers or members of the public were caught on these hidden cameras at either Kaiser Permanente or Banana Republic.

Chan, 33, is next scheduled to be in court on December 18. The 33 new charges are:

> 3 counts of 1st-degree encouraging child sex abuse
> 3 counts of 2nd-degree encouraging child sex abuse
> 25 counts of 1st-degree invasion of personal privacy
> 2 counts of 2nd-degree invastion of personal privacy.
