Police are not releasing the man’s name because he has not been charged.

The incident was reported June 8 after store personnel found the pinhole camera concealed in an object, according to Detective Sgt. Steve Sitzes.

After reviewing store surveillance video and video from other stores in the shopping center, police obtained a license plate number and identified the suspect through his employer, Sitzes said.

Detective Kevin Blackburn questioned the 37-year-old man June 16, but the suspect quickly asked to call his attorney which ended the interrogation, Sitzes said.

A dome, which was painted red, was taped to a wall below a seat in the fitting room, Sitzes said. Inside was the pinhole camera and a camera card.
“Based on the position of the camera, nothing above the knees could be seen,” Sitzes told The Missourian.

Store personnel became aware of the object when it fell off the wall.

Sitzes said after reviewing in-store video, police identified a possible suspect who was in the area of the fitting room. The man left the store, changed his clothes in a van, then returned wearing different clothes as well as sunglasses and a ball cap, the detective said.

When he returned he walked around the store for a time, then left without buying anything.
“Due to his actions, we identified him as a possible suspect,” Sitzes said.

Thinking that this was not the first time he did this, detectives sought a search warrant for the man’s home, but the prosecutor’s office declined to issue one based on the amount of evidence, Sitzes said.

Police are seeking to charge the suspect with misdemeanor invasion of privacy but the final decision will come from the prosecutor’s office.
