Louisiana Cops Want You to Look Out for Secret Bathroom Cameras
Police in Sulphur, Louisiana are sounding the alarm after removing a secret camera they'd found in the ladies restroom. One alleged video voyeur is behind bars, but authorities are worried that he won't be the last.
Authorities reportedly arrested 56-year old Steven Davis after a hidden camera was found in the ladies room of a popular restaurant. According to the account from Newsweek, he was charged with one count of video voyeurism and is now sitting in the Calcasieu Correctional Center on a $70,000 bond. Luckily, the device was found and removed before it could claim it's first victim. If convicted, Davis could serve a maximum of 2 years in prison.
According to KPLC, the Sulphur Police Department has issued this statement:
The Sulphur Police Department urges everyone to stay observant in areas where privacy is expected, and notify your local law enforcement agency if there is any suspicion of being recorded when an expectation of privacy is apparent
