SACRAMENTO -- Sacramento detectives are searching for a man suspected of putting a hidden camera in a local store's bathrooms.

Last October, an employee at a North Sacramento retail store, located south of Interstate 80, discovered a small camera positioned under a sink in the bathroom. It was pointed at a urinal and toilet.

The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department looked through the footage captured on the camera and found the suspect had placed the camera in an additional bathroom in a similar spot earlier in the day.

After hitting record, the man was caught on the camera. The surveillance system in the store also captured the man.

The suspect has not been identified by the sheriff's department.

Detectives are not revealing the store to encourage other businesses that may have been targeted to come forward without fear of retribution.
