INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – An Indianapolis couple discovered a miniature camera tucked inside a vent inside their apartment bathroom early Sunday morning, police say.

An officer was dispatched to investigate the incident in the 3700 block of Allerton Place around 12:44 a.m. When he arrived, he spoke with the husband and wife.

The wife told the officer that when she was getting ready to take a bath, she looked up and noticed that a vent covering an air duct on the ceiling was loose. She then called her husband in to fix it. When he took a look at the vent, he reportedly could see the camera connected to wires and a nine-volt battery.

The couple showed the officer the installed camera and told him that they do not feel safe and will be speaking to their apartment manager.
