A 52-year-old man was arrested after a model allegedly found a miniature camera in a changing room in a Toronto beauty shop, police said.
Patrick MacMillan of Toronto is charged with eight counts of voyeurism, Toronto police said in a statement. On Tuesday, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police arrested MacMillan at his home and charged him with two counts of voyeurism for incidents on May 14. A 19-year-old model was watching makeup application when she apparently saw a small digital camera on the floor of the change room. She reportedly went to get help and when a store employee looked down the recording, he found one too.
Officers determined MacMillan had previously purchased the camera used by the model on April 21st and installed it in the change room, where it had allegedly been since.
The model received modeling representation from the RBC makeup studio in Toronto where MacMillan worked, according to CBC.
MacMillan is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday.
It is not clear why he was working for the beauty studio when the incident occurred.
