    On May 31, 2011, deputies responded to the Starbuck’s CafĂ© within the Brandon Town Center in reference to a complaint from the Manager. The manager advised the deputy, she had removed a device that had been attached to a pipe from underneath the sink in the unisex bathroom. The manager first discovered the device at 1:30 p.m. Detectives reviewed the images from the camera device that positively identified the suspect. Detectives discovered that the suspect apparently had the camera on when he walked to his car with the camera and opened his trunk and the film showed his license plate.

    Detectives obtained an arrest warrant and went to his residence where he was arrested without incident on June 8, 2011. The suspect admitted to placing the camera in the restroom and stated he had previously done so approximately 6 to 7 times in the past two months. He stated he would place the camera in the restroom and then retrieve it later.

    The investigation continues.
