ORANGE COUNTY, CA -- Orange County sheriff's investigators were checking surveillance footage today in an attempt to determine who placed a hidden camera in a dressing room of a local clothing store.
An employee at at found the hidden camera on Saturday afternoon, said Jim Amormino of the Orange County Sheriff's Department.
The camera—which is a half-inch by two inches and resembles a thumb drive—was attached to a black, wooden picture frame containing advertisements that was placed in the dressing room, Amormino said.
"It was concealed with black electrical tape to match the frame," he said.
Sheriff's deputies have the camera at a crime lab to see if it contains any images, Amormino said.
"We don't know how long the camera's been there," he said.
Investigators are unsure if a customer or an employee may have hidden the camera in the unisex dressing room, Amormino said.
"We're not ruling anybody out—anything's possible," he said.
Investigators are checking the surveillance cameras for the mall and the store for any clues.
Patch called the Gap headquarters in San Francisco, but there was no response.
