Authorities found cameras disguised as wall-mounted coat hooks in at least three public bathrooms in and around the Florida Keys, according to a new report.
Over the last week the hidden devices were discovered in the women’s room of a Circle K outlet, the girls’ room in a park at Anne’s Beach, and the women’s room at Harry Harris Park, police said this week.
“These are very small cameras that can be mounted in many locations and hidden in many seemingly every-day items,” Monroe County Sheriff Rick Ramsay said in a statement reported by the Sun-Sentinel. “If you find anything suspicious you think might contain a hidden camera, don’t touch it. Call us right away and we will respond.”
The sheriff went on to say the devices were set to record video when a motion detection device was triggered. The cameras are like many that can be bought on line for home security, Ramsay said.
Ramsay also noted that operators of both public and private bathroom facilities have been urged to search for similar devices to protect the sexual privacy of their customers.
