WHNT reports a man who was arrested for child pornography admitted hiding cameras in the women’s bathrooms at the Huntsville, Ala. CBS affiliate.
The State Bureau of Investigations was questioning Jeremy Nelson, who worked for a janitorial service used by WHNT, after a two-month investigation for producing and trading in child pornography when he told investigators about the cameras. He said he had hidden cameras in the restrooms of three area businesses.
They say Nelson told them there was still one camera in the women’s restroom at WHNT News 19 and described in detail where investigators could find it. Agents found the camera exactly where they say he told them and removed it for evidence. They also searched all other restrooms and dressing areas at the television station as a precaution. They didn’t find any other recording devices.
WHNT said it has “terminated the cleaning company’s contract with the station.”
