Peeping TomSIMI VALLEY, Calif. – A clerk at a Christian bookstore in Simi Valley was arrested on suspicion of peeping after police found a video camera hidden in a bathroom at the store, authorities said.

Officers were called to the Family Christian Book Store in the 2900 block of Cochran Street on Sunday afternoon after a 40-year-old woman and her husband reported finding the video camera, said Simi Valley Police Sgt. Dwight Thompson.

After examining the video, investigators determined that 28-year-old Joseph Moreaux had gone to the restroom just before the victim to hide the camera and record her while she was inside.

“It was not a sophisticated device,” Thompson said of the camera.
