Hidden Camera Found In Women’s Bathroom At Sallisaw Restaurant, Man Arrested

On Sunday, April 14, a customer at Roma's Italian Restaurant in Sallisaw logged into a WiFi account and saw a camera pointing at a bathroom stall.

Sallisaw officers, with assistance from restaurant management, located a hidden wireless Bluetooth camera in the air vent above the stall in the women's bathroom.

Tuesday (April 16) Edgar Leonel Moran-Carrera, 32, was arrested after he confessed to placing the camera in the bathroom. He has been an employee since the restaurant opened.

According to a press release, this is the second time a camera has been found in the women's bathroom at the restaurant, but is the first time it's been reported to the police.

Upon searching Moran-Carrera's residence, investigators seized several cellphones, laptops, data storage devices and computer equipment.

This case is still under investigation.
