Police arrest man for intimate image abuse

Facing Court

A 52-year-old Weetangera man will appear before the ACT Magistrates Court today (Thursday, 2 September 2021), following an investigation that he had been making intimate recordings of a woman without her consent.

Police will allege the man had used a hidden camera over the course of several months to capture images of the woman in a bedroom.

Yesterday (Wednesday, 1 September 2021) ACT Policing members executed a warrant at a Belconnen residence.

During the search, officers located a hidden camera in the bedroom and a laptop computer. The computer contained intimate images and video recordings captured by the hidden camera.

The man has been charged with intimate observations capturing visual data of another person.

Police enquiries into the hundreds of other recordings located on the computer are continuing, and are expected to identify other victims. Police anticipate laying more charges against the man.
