Arrest was made a week after report that defendant in case had ‘loophole’ allowing him to record at stores without detection

A Toronto man has been charged with voyeurism after an alleged recording device found in a Victoria’s Secret lingerie change room.

Police announced on Saturday that they had arrested Mohammed Badr, 32, after he allegedly took a cellphone and placed it in a changing room where a model was getting undressed.

Police said that a warrant was issued on 10 January for Badr’s arrest. An altercation broke out between Badr and the Victoria’s Secret staff before the charges were laid, police said. The incident left Badr with a bruise on his nose.

“This is a great example of the serious consequences for those who steal or put hidden cameras in places they shouldn’t be,” Detective Sergeant Christine Clark said in a press release.

“While there is a specific law, voyeurism, that puts you on notice if you commit this offence, there are many hoops to jump through to get your video back.”

Authorities revealed last month that Badr apparently placed a hidden camera in a Victoria’s Secret in the Toronto Eaton Centre. Surveillance video of the store shows Badr leaving the Victoria’s Secret on 7 November with two items. The next day, a witness found a cellphone that appeared to have been placed in the Victoria’s Secret change room. Police identified the owner of the phone as Badr.

Last week, Clark said it appeared that Badr had a lapse in judgment, but had not been caught during an examination of his laptop computer and home computer.
