A 44-year-old man was arrested this week for peeping with a video camera at a high school graduation party in Petaluma after a Go Pro camera was found discreetly hidden in a cat litter box in a bathroom.
A resident was hosting the graduation party Tuesday night at their home for their 17-year-old student.
During the party, the Go Pro camera was discovered positioned and hidden in a cat litter box in one of the residence's bathrooms. A police spokesperson said the camera had been recording for approximately 30 minutes prior to it being discovered, but no one at the party admitted to owning the camera.
Police seized the camera for their investigation and on Wednesday watched the video that had been recorded, observing the suspect recording himself as he placed the camera into the litter box.
