SoCal Starbucks camera victims sought

Posted: Updated:

GLENDORA, Calif. (AP) — Police are trying to identify dozens of women who were photographed by a hidden camera in a Southern California Starbucks bathroom.

Twenty-five-year-old William Velasco of San Dimas was arrested on May 4 after an employee found a camera disguised as part of a coat hook in a Glendora Starbucks. Police say the images were downloaded to a computer but apparently weren't shared.

Police say the camera was only active on April 14 and April 15 but it recorded images of 45 women and children. Authorities in the eastern Los Angeles suburb have identified 11 victims and said Tuesday that they want to hear from others.

Velasco, who's free on $50,000 bail, faces a misdemeanor charge of secretly recording victims for sexual gratification.
