Hidden camera found in Woods Humane Society bathroom
September 8, 2011
Police suspect a San Luis Obispo man of placing hidden cameras in several bathrooms and child pornography.
After a visitor reported suspicious activity in a bathroom at the Woods Humane Society to the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s office, deputies discovered a hidden camera disguised as a key fob.
Jacob Allen Imel, 32, allegedly placed cameras in various public restrooms in July. A search of Imel’s computer revealed child pornography and bathroom photos of a child under 12. Police said Imel was trying to film under her skirt.
None of the photos discovered were taken at Woods Humane Society.
Police are attempting to locate the other bathroom and are asking for the public’s help. Anyone who may have had contact with the suspect is asked to call the SAFE team at 781-4500.
Police have yet to arrest Imel.
