Women beware! When you see a hook attached in the women’s public toilet you need to take some precautions. The problem with these hooks is that they seem like an average hook used to hang clothes but this one has a sinister use.
Police already issued a warning about the innocent-looking hooks on public toilets since a few people already reported it to them. The hook can be bought in Amazon for just £8.99 (US $ 11.24) per piece. That innocent looking hook is not what is seemed since it has a small camera attached to it.
The hook seems cool since it looks like a gadget that James Bond would use in one off his missions. The miniature camera is mounted inside film. The camera is almost undetectable to the naked eye as it is placed in a small hole at the plastic, which is common thing in most plastic products. It has a motion detection sensor, which would record anything that moves within its range.
According to Metro, Luke Whiting, a 21-year-old man got arrested when he placed the camera inside a McDonald’s female toilet. Unfortunately for him, one of his colleagues spotted the camera and had him reported to the officials.
“Anyone who has a public restroom on their property needs to check them closely. If you find anything suspicious you think might contain a hidden camera, don’t touch it. Call us right away and we will respond,” the Florida Keys sheriff said.
