Man Arrested after Camera Found in Store’s Fitting Room

Observant store security officers identified the problem quickly, allowing for the arrest of the suspect.

Auburn Hills (Michigan) police investigators have arrested and charged a 46-year-old Orion Township man with installing the hidden camera inside the Target store on Brown Road, as Nathan Howard Wilson was arraigned on four felony charges: surveilling an unclothed person, capturing or distributing an image of an unclothed person, eavesdropping and using a computer to commit a crime. Wilson is jailed on a $50,000 cash bond and is due back in court on February 3.

The investigation opened on Sunday afternoon, January 19, when summoned to the store by loss prevention officer, with officers confronting Wilson as he left the store. The camera had just been installed.
