A man accused of secretly filming inside a bathroom at a Pacific Heights business Sunday was cited for misdemeanor illegal videotaping and released, police said.
But the probe into the creepy toilet taping is not over, as investigators are trying to determine the extent of the crime, a police official at the Northern Police Station said.
The District Attorney’s Office has taken on the case, the official said.
Police have been tight-lipped about the incident, which was reported about 2:15 p.m. at a business on Fillmore and California streets.
The suspect and the business have not been named.
An employee found the camera in the bathroom and called police. The camera was in a cardboard box with a hole in it that was stuffed into a black duffle bag. The camera had been pointed toward the toilet, and investigators found footage showing “numerous videos of men and women using the toilet,” police said.
The suspect, who has not been identified but was described as a man in his 30s, was allegedly seen on video setting up the camera and later taking it down, police said.
Police say the suspect will appear in court next month.
