Ehime man secretly films over 1,000 women with collection of hidden cameras
A 45-year-old man, who was arrested on Wednesday for taking indecent videos of two shop assistants in Matsuyama, Ehime Prefecture, last November, had images of more than 1,000 women at his home, police said.
The suspect, identified as Yuji Maekawa, 45, was arrested for taking up-skirt videos of two store employees with a tiny camera shaped like a remote infra-red car key fob in Matsuyama on Nov 3. Upon searching his home police found another seven cameras disguised as various innocuous objects such as a ball-point pen, a wristwatch and a lighter. They also found secretly-filmed videos of over 1,000 women on hard disk drives in Maekawa’s apartment.
During police questioning, Maekawa was quoted as saying that filming the women satisfied his sexual desire.
