San Miguel Peeping Tom accused of placing cameras in bedroom vents
April 24, 2014
A San Miguel man is accused of breaking into North County homes and installing hidden cameras overlooking residents’ bedrooms.
Last month, San Luis Obispo County sheriff’s deputies responded to a burglary in the area of Bonita Place and Verde Place in San Miguel. During the burglary investigation, deputies discovered that a suspect had gained access to three homes in the area and installed cameras in ventilation systems above the bedrooms.
Deputies identified the suspect as San Miguel resident Eutimio Contreras Anguiano, 34. Anguiano recorded images using the wireless cameras in the vents and a receiver.
On April 13, deputies arrested Anguiano for burglary, eavesdropping and making criminal threats.
An investigation into the eavesdropping scheme is ongoing, and the sheriff’s office is asking North County residents to check their ventilation systems for hidden cameras.
