An IT worker caught on camera urinating on the chairs of female colleagues has turned himself into local police and been charged with criminal offences.

Raymond Charles Foley, 59, was initially dismissed from his IT job at US company Farm Bureau Financial Services after being busted for urinating, in a strange cat like sexual marking technique, on the chairs of co-workers whom he deemed to be attractive.

The WestDesMoinesPatch reported that the suspect turned himself into police.

Farm Bureau Financial Services corporate VP Lauri Strottman, alerted authorities following the company's discovery of who the urine bandit was after an investigation was sparked by employees who had complained about stains on their chairs since October. Farm Bureau had surveillance cameras installed in February to solve the mystery.

The rogue employee was allegedly caught on tape as he urinated on several chairs, causing about US$4,500 in damages.

Strottman said the former employee who worked in the IT department had access to the employee database, which included photos of his coworkers. According to police reports , the suspect admitted to Strottman, "I was doing inappropriate things I shouldn't be doing." The company terminated the man's employment Monday, and he left the premises without incident. ®
