IRVING, TX (NBC/KXAS) - Who’s watching you? Police in Texas are worried this may be the start of a new trend: hidden cameras in public restrooms.

Creepers are coming up with creative new ways to invade your privacy.

She’s stunned to find out the place you think you have the most privacy, a bathroom, is becoming a target for creepers.

KXAS learned that in the last two months, police were called to a Starbucks on North Macarthur in Irving.

It’s there that employees found a small video camera taped under a sink inside a women’s bathroom. The camera appeared to be motion-activated.

Weeks after the Starbucks discovery in late February, police were called to an apartment complex on North Belt Line.

Cleaning staff discovered a small camera disguised as a coat hook in the fitness center bathroom.

With no memory card inside the device, police couldn’t track it back to anyone.

Now police warn this may be just the beginning of a disturbing trend.
