Security specialists urged people to be vigilant about hidden cameras after Baltimore County Police on Thursday arrested a man they say secretly filmed people in a family bathroom at White Marsh Mall.

Last week, police released footage of a man setting up the the device in the restroom on Dec. 23. They said the camera was placed on a partition between two bathroom areas, pointing toward a toilet — and that it recorded both children and adults.

On Wednesday, police asked anyone who may have been in the family bathroom between about 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 23 to call them at 410-307-2020.
