GUNMA (TR) – Gunma Prefectural Police have arrested a 43-year-old employee at a construction company who is alleged to have used spy cameras to take illicit images of multiple women he tracked via a global positioning system (GPS) throughout the prefecture, reports TBS News (Sept. 15).

Beginning in September of last year, Minoru Inoue, an employee at a public works-related company in Numata City, allegedly used cameras installed in a pair of glasses and a wristwatch to take tosatsu, or voyeur, footage of three women, two of whom are acquaintances.

Inoue, who has been charged with violating a public nuisance ordinance, admits to the allegations. “I wanted to see the women,” the suspect is quoted by police.

The center of frame of the glasses included a hole in which a micro camera had been inserted. Another camera was inserted in a small hole in the dial of the wristwatch.

In locating the women, the suspect attached a GPS tracking device to their vehicles.

The matter came to light after one of the women consulted with police after discovering a transmission device, according to the Sankei Shimbun (Sept. 14).
