Hidden camera found in body wax salon

MARIETTA, Ga. -- Cobb County Police are trying to figure out who put a hidden camera inside a private room where women get Brazilian waxes.

Detectives searched the Salon Avenue Suites on Sandy Plains Road in Marietta after a woman reported seeing a camera hidden in the ceiling.

Sarah Amar rents space in the salon.

"A girl was actually getting a wax and looked up and said, oh my God, I think that's a camera," Amar said.

Police said the camera was hidden in a vent in the ceiling. Another woman said a second camera was found in Suite 110.

Meredith Hilton said she used to rent Suite 110 and is upset about the discovery.

"My concern is that I was the person who was first in that suite and that my daughter and myself were here many times alone," she said.

11Alive News has learned the landlord who rents the spaces is a registered sex offender. He was convicted of aggravated assault with intent to rape in 2004. We are not identifying him because he has not been charged. Police towed his car that was parked behind the salon. 

A detective on the scene confirmed the discovery of the camera but said, "We don't know how or what it was recording."
