KMOV is reporting that a former employee who quit Spear Construction the day after she said she found a camera in the women's bathroom now is coming forward. You can see her interview with News 4’s Lindsay Bramson later today at News 4 at 5 and on KMOV.com.
Brian Spear, who owns Spear Construction, was charged with attempted invasion of privacy in the second degree last year after mounting a camera under the sink in the women's bathroom.
According to KMOV, police said Spear placed a hidden camera in the women’s restroom and recorded women on the toilet. Authorities said a camera was found under a pipe under the sink, which recorded women from behind.
Spears admitted to the accusations in an interview with Crestwood Police, saying he’s a “butt guy.” Police said he had watched video of several different women over at least a two-month span.
When reached for comment, Marcie, the marketing director at Spear Construction, said that she had no comment because this was the first she had heard of the allegations. This may perhaps be due to the fact that Spear was charged last October. Crestwood Chief of Police Mike Paillou said that there is no new information and that this case was "old news."
The next hearing is scheduled for June 5 at the St. Louis County Court Building in Clayton.
