Hidden camera in dressing room

View Comments

(CNS) – Orange County sheriff’s investigators were checking surveillance footage today in an attempt to determine who placed a hidden camera in a dressing room of a clothing store at the Shops at Mission Viejo.

An employee at the Gap store in the mall found the hidden camera on Saturday afternoon, said Jim Amormino of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

The camera — which is a half-inch by two inches and resembles a thumb drive –was attached to a black, wooden picture frame containing advertisements that was placed in the dressing room, Amormino said. “It was concealed with black electrical tape to match the frame,” he said.

Sheriff’s deputies have the camera at a crime lab to see if it contains any images, Amormino said. “We don’t know how the camera’s been there,” he said.

Investigators are unsure if a customer or an employee may have hid the camera in the unisex dressing room, Amormino said. “We’re not ruling anybody out — anything’s possible,” he said.
