Perth landlord investigated after spy cameras allegedly found in bathroom
A Perth landlord is being investigated by police over allegations he hid spy cameras in the bathroom of a home he leased.
A mother-of-two, identified only as Shannon, told 9NEWS she noticed a small black dot on a hook on the wall of the bathroom in the Yangebup house where she had rented a room.
In panic, she ripped it off and found a camera.
“It was a video camera. And it was videoing me while I was having a shower and getting changed and getting undressed in my bathroom,” Shannon said.
“I was sickened, sickened to the core of my stomach because I knew he’d been watching me for at least seven or eight weeks.”
Fremantle detectives are investigating but have not laid any charges.
They have seized more than 40 items from the home including a computer.
The landlord admitted to 9NEWS he bought the spy cameras on eBay but claims they weren’t working and he didn’t know if they had collected any footage.
The offence of filming a person without their consent can attract a jail sentence of up to a year.
Shannon said she found the room on Gumtree and the landlord was her housemate.
She is hoping anyone who lived in the house before her will come forward.
“I do know that there were many women living in the house before me,” Shannon said.
