MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Police are investigating a Minnesota man who allegedly hid cameras inside dressing rooms at the Mall of America in Bloomington and another Minneapolis area shopping mall.
The 41-year-old Elk River man has not been charged. The Star Tribune reports details were contained in a search warrant affidavit.
The affidavit alleges the suspect used cameras that could be operated remotely using a cellphone.
Authorities allege the man targeted stores frequented by teenage girls, including Hollister and Forever 21. He was arrested in September with help from a store manager.
According to the affidavit, the suspect would mount a fake shelf to fitting room walls at the Mall of America with cameras mounted under the shelves.
Bloomington police learned that police also were investigating a hidden camera found at the Maplewood Mall.
