When you are in public and you see a coat hook, you normally wouldn’t think twice about it. This is why criminals have been installing them in places like restrooms and hotel rooms. They blend in with their natural environment and most people don’t think twice about them.
Shocking information has been released that talks about how these coat hooks have the ability to ruin your life.
Don’t let their basic appearance fool you; a lot of them have a high-tech spy camera hidden in them.
After a recent run in in Florida, detectives are investigating reports of hidden camera planted in numerous women’s restrooms.
“Detectives in the Upper Keys are investigating three reports involving hidden cameras found in women’s restrooms,” MCSO reported on their Facebook page.
“In all three incidents, miniature cameras hidden in coat hooks were found mounted on the walls in the women’s restrooms. They were found at Anne’s Beach on May 26th, the Circle K Store at the 99.8 mile marker of Highway U.S. One on May 28th and in the women’s bathroom at Harry Harris Park in Tavernier today.”
Anyone can buy these online, which means that it only costs a few dollars to spy on someone in their most intimate moments.
Police departments are warning citizens to be cautious:
“Anyone who has a public restroom on their property needs to check them closely,” said Sheriff Ramsay. “If you find anything suspicious you think might contain a hidden camera, don’t touch it. Call us right away and we will respond,” he said.
