Hidden Webcam Found In Restroom At Iowa Store

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Police say a miniature webcam has been found hidden in an employee restroom at a Des Moines grocery store.

A police report obtained by the Des Moines Register says the camera was attached to a light fixture above a toilet in the restroom designated for female workers at a Dahl’s Foods store. It was discovered by an employee.

Police say the webcam appeared to be in operation and may have been transmitting video when it was found.

Store officials had no comment Saturday on the case.

    It’s gotten to the point that you about have to do a sweep of public restrooms before using them. Unfortunately the perp will probably not get caught, and hopefully this won’t reflect on the store itself. Ladies – look around the restrooms before using them. If something looks odd, alert the store manager immediately. It may be nothing, but better to have that than to have some nutcase watching what’s going on.
