Man arrested for installing spy camera in convenience store toilet

26 Comments

Police in Fukuoka have arrested a 28-year-old man on suspicion of committing an obscene act in violation of public nuisance laws after he installed a tiny spy camera in the toilet of a convenience store last October.

According to police, Yuichiro Nakao, who is a company employee, has admitted to the charge. He was quoted as saying he planted the camera because he got a thrill out of seeing women naked and their underwear.

Police said that Nakao planted the camera with a 5-millimeter lens in the toilet of the convenience store in Fukuoka’s Nishi Ward last Oct 24. The camera, which was attached to a battery by a thin cord, was connected wirelessly to Nakao’s smartphone. He told police he later uploaded the footage to a website where he sold it.

A convenience store employee found the camera while cleaning the toilet.

Police said they found nine other spy cameras when they searched Nakao’s residence and are questioning him on where else he has planted the cameras in the past.

That camera was in there a long time. He probably took thousands of videos.

To my knowledge, no one gets naked in a convenience store toilet

Which is it, sonny? Does he get charger with a lesser crime if he claims he did it because he's a peeping tom pervert, than if he was doing it to make money

I know a coffee shop that has found them 3 times. Although I’m gay, I think it is a good idea to have women only toilets and train carriages.

Most men do! I do! You do! What guy doesn't get a thrill from seeing a woman naked or in their underwear? But we don't do anything this far across the line! (only if its consensual/mutual) Only a sick mind would do something this gross. How would he feel if the tables were turned on his sister, daughter, wife, mother or girlfriend?

Most people enjoy sex, but I fail to see the appeal in what he did.

Um, you have to bare your buttocks in order to use the toilet.

I remember when a woman was arrested for secretly videotaping a gym locker room. These videos fetch a lot of money so there is probably more going on than you realize.

Well let me tell ya women do more then get naked in convenience stores. They have babies in convenience stores then they leave the babies there and walk away as if nothing happened.

So he was watching Men, Women & kids of all ages use the restroom.  This guy is truly a Pervert.

Does this mean that he had to spend his days hanging around in the conbini car park? Interested to know how he set it up, I wouldn't mind setting up some remote cams in the wild but not sure how to do it without using sim cards.

baring your buttocks isn't the same as getting naked.

You don't have to get completely naked to give birth either.

Never said you had to get naked to have a baby. Just said women do more then get naked in convenience stores.

Fair enough. But my point still holds true. People don't get butt naked in a conbini unless they've mistaken it for an onsen

So disgusting, and what was the punishment for that? They should lock him because he sold the vid on the net site

So the greater the world population gets the more Weirdo's, Perverts, Rapist, Pedophiles ... etc etc etc ... we as a society will encounter. So the bottom line to this is watch the people around you cause you just never know the type of person they really are.

This kind of pathetically perverted behaviour will not stop until severe penalties are put in place for these perverted creeps! It should be a mandatory two years in the pen straight up!

Doel jusino:

Not just pedo, but gerophile (likes old people). Stay within your age group, people. 

Any suggestions to thwart this before it happens? Perhaps a PSA saying "please dont do that"?

Disillusioned:

I think punishment should match the crime (reciprocal). If he filmed them, he should be filmed. If he put online, his of him should be put online. If he kidnapped (imprisoned) someone for 2 years, then he should be imprisoned for 2 years.

Hate to sound like a Luddite but technologies ability to encroach on individuals privacy is downright scary.

Very Pathetic...and exhibits a distinct lack of intelligence/maturity.

Women sit down to pee, and expose little when doing so. It really hard to imagine what this Guy sought to achieve - instead he should have joined up with one of those Online Adults Sites such as "adultfriendfinder" to satisfy his thirst for such "exposure" videos.... would have cost him a lot less.
