A woman contacted police and said that she believed she and four girls were recorded while using a gas station washroom, according to a Saskatoon Police Service news release. The 29-year-old woman reported seeing a smartphone lens peeking through the bathroom ceiling, police said. She alleged that a camera phone was placed in a broken ceiling tile.

 “There had been a camera placed in a location where a camera shouldn’t have been, a place where people could expect privacy,” said Saskatoon Police Staff Sgt. Grant Obst. Following the woman’s call, officers arrested a 25-year-old man at the gas station and seized his cell phone, police said. The gas station is operated by Parkland Fuel Corporation. A spokesperson said an employee was suspended after the company learned of the alleged incident.  

“The privacy and safety of our customers are an overriding priority and we strongly condemn this behaviour,” Leroy Mckinnon, corporate communication specialist at Parkland Fuel Corporation said.  

The 25-year-old man who was placed under arrest has since been released, and officers are working to obtain a search warrant to access the content of the cellphone, police said.
