HIROSHIMA (TR) – Hiroshima Prefectural Police have arrested a male employee at a post office in Higashi-Hiroshima City for allegedly trespassing into a women’s bathroom to plant a hidden camera, reports TV Asahi (Aug. 16).

Sometime between August 13 and 15, Kazutaka Teramoto, 23, allegedly trespassed into a women’s bathroom at the Hachihonmatsu Post Office and planted the small camera.
