NY contractor arrested after client finds camera

Posted: Updated:

AMHERST, N.Y. (AP) - Police say a Buffalo-area contractor installed a video camera in a client's bathroom so he could tape her as she showered.

Kevin Eckert was arrested Saturday at his home. The 60-year-old faces charges of unlawful surveillance and stalking.

Authorities say his customer, an Amherst woman in her 30s, was getting out of the shower one morning earlier this week when she noticed a lens sticking out of an air vent. She called her husband, who discovered the hidden camera and called police.

Aauthorities are looking into the possibility that other customers might also have been videotaped in their homes.

It was not immediately clear whether Eckert had an attorney.
