Patrol officer arrested over convenience store toilet camera in Kagawa
A police officer in Takamatsu, Kagawa Prefecture, has been arrested after confessing to installing a miniature video camera in a public toilet at a convenience store in an attempt to video shoppers. According to TBS, the accused—identified as 36-year-old Ryo Tanigawa, a head patrol officer of the traffic division—finished his shift at 2 p.m. on Monday, before entering the unisex bathroom of a convenience store in Miki and affixing the camera to the floor at around 3 p.m.
The camera was discovered on Tuesday by the store manager during a routine inspection and reported to the police, TBS reported. An examination of the store’s CCTV camera footage led investigators back to Tanigawa.
