Burdett Man Admits to Planting Camera in Public Washroom in Taber

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: Frederik Dekker of Burdett has entered a guilty plea in connection with a disturbing case of voyeurism discovered in Taber earlier this year.

 

February 1st a woman using a public washroom in a Taber convenience store found a camera on the floor and handed it over to staff. They promptly called Taber police, who proceeded to go over the video stored on the camera.

 

Jennifer Rees is a Crown prosecutor with the Specialized Prosecution Branch, which deals with internet and technology crime. She goes over what they found on the camera, "Anybody using the washroom was caught on tape, predominantly men and women. There were a couple of pictures where children were also using the washroom, although not much detail was seen with regard to the children using the washroom, they're usually in there with a parent."

 

Fortunately for police, the camera also recorded the process during which it was set up in the washroom, giving them a close up view of the suspect. After releasing the photo to the media, calls quickly came in identifying Dekker and he was taken into custody.

 

While a police report released shortly after the incident said as many as 50 people could have been caught on tape, Rees noted that it's difficult to determine who those people are and even where the footage was taken. She noted that in addition to where the camera was found, they have also identified three different public washrooms, although they're not sure where they are.

 

Leading up to sentencing a pre-sentence report and psychiatric risk assessment have been ordered. Sentencing has been set for January.
