U.S. man arrested over shower camera allegedly hidden in shampoo bottle

Police say a Connecticut man hid a tiny camera in a shampoo bottle to watch two of his female roommates as they took showers.

A male roommate, curious abou why the shampoo had not been moved for some time, found wires protruding from the back of the bottle, and called police, authorities said.

The camera recorded through a pinhole, and the images were sent to Steven Thibodeau's television, police said. Thibodeau, 25, had placed the camera to record the women showering and made a video of one of them changing clothes, according to police.

Thibodeau was arraigned Wednesday on 15 counts of voyeurism and one count of evidence tampering, which alleges he tried to delete some images.

He was being held in jail on$250,000 (EUR188,000) bail. The defense attorney who attended his arraignment was out of the office Thursday and could not be reached for comment, reports AP.

Police said Thibodeau made a compilation video of one of the women, but they have no evidence he transferred the files to the Internet. It was not yet known how long the shampoo had been wired.
