Camera voyeur on the loose in Terrace, BC

Suspect apparently conceals small camera in an envelope

THERE have been multiple reported incidents of a man in Terrace using a camera hidden in an envelope to record under women’s skirts.

Local businesses are aware of the situation. There is a Facebook posting that cautions retailers to look out for the man. He is described as First Nations, 5 ft 5 inches tall, medium build, approximately 50 years old, says Cst Angela Rabut, Community Policing/Media Relations Terrace RCMP.

The first incident occurred on July 16th at approximately noon at a local clothing store. The man dropped an envelope onto the floor and attempted to lure a woman wearing a skirt to stand over the envelope. He returned to the store a couple of hours later and attempted the same thing. An employee of the store observed a small hole cut into the envelope and what appeared to be a small camera lens sticking out of the hole.

On August 14th at approximately 2 PM a local clothing business reported a man attempting to look under women’s skirts by using a camera hidden in an envelope. The same man was caught doing the same thing later in the day at another clothing business in Terrace.
