Man gets probation, fine for placing hidden camera in public changing room
The camera was active for just an hour before it was discovered.
PLANO A man who police say placed a hidden camera in a changing room at Oak Point Recreation Center was given five years' probation by a Collin County court Friday.
Christopher Scott Furber, 45, of Garland, pleaded guilty to improper photography or visual recording. He will pay the court a $500 fine in addition to serving probation.
In November 2011, a camera disguised as an air freshener was found in a changing room at Oak Point Recreation Center. Police said the camera had been active for about one hour before being discovered.
Images taken from the camera of a man who police said placed the device in the room were released to the media in early December. Furber turned himself in to police a few days after the images were released.
