Wrentham Police Arrest Man for Secret Bathroom Recordings
WRENTHAM — A Rhode Island man has been arrested for allegedly dressing as a woman to record women and young girls in the ladies room of the Wrentham Outlets.
Wrentham Police said Tuesday that 23-year-old Jacob Guerrero of Woonsocket, a delivery driver for Amazon, was arrested Monday as he left the Amazon parking lot opposite the Wrentham Outlets.
He is being charged with photographing an unsuspecting nude person and 12 counts of possessing child pornography.
According to police, the investigation began on August 24, when the department received a call from outlet customers reporting a man dressed as a woman and acting suspiciously in the public women's restroom.
Police said the suspect allegedly entered the women's room while wearing a blonde wig.
He then allegedly occupied stalls next to those used by women and younger girls, estimated to be 12-15 years old.
When police arrived, the suspect had left the area.
But police said after an initial investigation, it seemed he had a pen camera fastened to his sneaker.
Pen cameras are easily concealed surveillance cameras that can record video and photos that can then be transferred to another device.
According to police, after reviewing surveillance camera footage, officers located the suspect and his vehicle, leading to the identification of Guerrero.
Officers then arrested Guerrero on Sept. 2 during a motor vehicle stop on High Street in Wrentham.
Guerrero was then charged with photographing an unsuspecting nude person.
Wrentham Police continued to investigate Guerrero, searching his personal vehicle and his cell phone.
They allegedly found twelve videos in which the unsuspecting victims were recorded either nude or partially nude.
Five of the twelve victims were under 18.
Of these, police said several are likely between 8 and 11 years old.
In at least one case, police said the suspect appears to have secretly recorded a young girl through her bedroom window as she undressed.
Guerrero is also charged with 12 counts of possessing child pornography.
He was arraigned Tuesday at Wrentham District Court.
