Affidavit: Man hid camera in dressing rooms, bathroom

November 25, 2019

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Court documents say an eastern Missouri man placed a hidden camera in store dressing rooms and a woman’s bathroom.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 34-year-old Gabriel Trevino was charged last week in federal court with production of child pornography. During a brief hearing Friday, his attorney waived a hearing at which she could have opposed a government request to hold him in jail until trial.

A task force officer with the FBI wrote in the affidavit that he placed a picture frame with a hidden camera in the bathroom of a female acquaintance, where it remained for about a week before she found it. The affidavit says Trevino also had numerous videos on his laptop that he created by placing the picture frame in dressing rooms in “various local stores.”

Trevino is from Franklin County.
