Camera found in bathroom of Christian bookstore

November 4th, 2009 by

SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (washingtonpost) — A 28-year-old clerk at a Christian bookstore in Simi Valley has been arrested on charges of peeping at customers in the restroom with a video camera. Police said the man was cited and released on suspicion of peeping by means of an electronic device Sunday after a customer spotted the device hidden among boxes in the corner of the bathroom of the Family Christian Book Store.

The 40-year-old woman and her husband called police to report the suspiciously placed camera.

Sgt. Dwight Thompson said the recording shows the suspect hiding the video camera in the bathroom because it was taping as he positioned it.

Thompson says investigators believe the incident was isolated because the victim and the suspect are the only people seen on the video.
