If you see this in a bathroom or hotel room, leave immediately! Don’t be a victim.
We’ve seen this many times before, but police are starting to warn people all across the country about it again. According to America Now, police in Florida (especially) have been warning residents about hidden cameras in bathrooms and even hotel rooms.
What the predators are doing is sticking towel/coat hangers in the rooms but they are fake. In fact, the hangers actually have hidden cameras where they can watch you shower, dress and undress and see anything you do in the hotel or bathroom.
This is something that has been going on for quite a while now after the police issued a statement last May (2016) when they had the same issue arise. People all over the country were being violated.
Although this story took place in Florida they are urging people everywhere to be aware of this awful and disgusting trick.
Detectives in the Upper Keys are investigating three reports involving hidden cameras found in women’s restrooms.
In all three incidents, miniature cameras hidden in coat hooks were found mounted on the walls in the women’s restrooms. They were found at Anne’s Beach on May 26th, the Circle K Store at the 99.8 mile marker of Highway U.S. One on May 28th and in the women’s bathroom at Harry Harris Park in Tavernier today.
The coat hooks mounted in all three locations are identical to devices available for purchase on line, sold by various companies as “home security devices”. Detectives have notified Monroe County Public Works and Islamorada Public Works and asked them to check all the bathrooms at county and city facilities; Sheriff Rick Ramsay wants to let everyone know so they also can be on the lookout.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU FIND ONE:
Sheriff Rick Ramsey released a statement telling residents exactly what to do if they find a hanger with a camera in it. He said check them closely, and if they find one DO NOT TOUCH IT. In fact he says that you should call authorities right away and let them respond to the camera hook.
“Anyone who has a public restroom on their property needs to check them closely,” said Sheriff Ramsay. “If you find anything suspicious you think might contain a hidden camera, don’t touch it. Call us right away and we will respond,” he said.
This is a very serious matter, and you should be very aware of it. PLEASE SHARE with all of your friends…this is disgusting and you do not want to be a victim.
