When female clients come to us for bug sweeps, about 80% of the time they suspect a hidden camera in the bedroom. Private investigator and former Federal agent Thomas Martin discusses one such case where devices were found.
A transcript of the video follows:
One of the more interesting aspects of being a private investigator is having the ability to conduct electronic eavesdropping detection sweeps in a residence or a business.
Often times, or about 80% of the time, our female clients will come to us with a specific request. Last week was the most recent one, where a 28 year-old female came to us with this eerie feeling that she was being recorded in her bedroom.
So she made an appointment, came into the office, we took down the information and we set up a time to do the sweep of her residence.
Not surprisingly, as in about 20% of these cases, when we went to her home in Southern California we found not only a monitoring device on her phone, but we also found a camera that was secreted in a cabinet area that was focused directly on her bed.
Now, we decided at that point in time, since the film on the camera showed that she had been sleeping alone in the bed, to leave the camera there and kind of smoke out the perpetrator when he came back. And that’s eventually what we did, is we put another camera in there and watched him come in and take his camera out.
This all went to, unfortunately, resulted in the woman filing for divorce and getting rid of her husband, who she said she just couldn’t trust anymore. And generally when it gets to that stage, the we try to assist the person in getting good council so that they can get their lives back in order.
