A man was arrested Tuesday after a video camera was found installed in the girls’ restroom of the elementary school he worked at in Hanamigawa Ward. Eichi Miyama, 36, was arrested for violating the Minor Offenses Act. He is suspected of entering the girls’ toilet and setting up the video camera some time between September and Nov 21.
According to police, Miyama said: “I like watching girls do their business…I’ve done this several times before.”
A fifth year student discovered the video camera in the bathroom on Nov 21, and informed staff. Miyama admitted to the offense when questioned by officials from the Chiba City Board of Education.
Miyama had been employed at the school since April 2006, during which time no other problems had arisen. The Chiba City Board of Education has dispatched a counselor to the school, and held a meeting for parents on the night of Nov 21.© Wire reports
