'Peeping Tom' caught on own camera
Police issue self-portrait of changing room spy cam man
Police have issued a fetching self-portrait of a man who was caught on the miniature camera he put in the ladies changing room of a Cheshire supermarket.
A police statement explains: "Police in Warrington are keen to trace a man who placed a small camera in a fitting room at Asda in the Westbrook centre in Warrington on December 19 at around 5pm. The device was placed in the light fitting and was in place for 30 minutes before it was discovered.
"Unfortunately for the man, he forgot to turn off the camera whilst placing it, and forensic examination of the data card shows him placing it in situ."
Police describe the man as "approx 30 - 35 years of age, of slim build smartly dressed wearing a long dark coat with a fleece type jumper underneath with a white circular logo on the left breast of fleece", and ask anyone who can identify him to call detective constable Julie Cassie on 0845 4580 000. ®
What's the problem?
It's obviously part of the Labour anti-crime initiative to crack down on shoplifting.
It will also allow NHS operatives to check on on how fat customers are so they can be given advice in store.
If you have nothing to hid, you have nothing to fear and I for one welcome this new initiave to keep me safe with open arms.

Why didn't they just wait for him to go back and collect the camera at the end of the day? Presumably it isn't a completely wireless set-up.
its a good job the police described what he was wearing as i could not see it in front of me... i'll keep my eyes open for someone dressed like that so because its soooo likely that he will stay dressed in the same clothes until captured....
