A man of Indian origin in London has been sent to for years in jail after he was found guilty of placing hidden cameras in bathrooms, showers and bedrooms at his own home and office and in some London coffee shops.
The man identified as George Thomas (38) was working as an accountant with Ernst and Young, is married and has a child. According to police, this was one of the biggest cases of voyeurism with Thomas filming more than 3,000 females and children.
Thomas pleaded guilty to the various charges framed against him which included vouyeurism and taking indecent images.
Detective Constable Sarah Gardner, of the Metropolitan Police told Independent, "Thomasâ€™s offending was extraordinary, not just because of the sheer numbers of people he filmed but also due to the highly organised way, in which he saved, stored and filed the footage.â€ť
It is reported that Thomas joined footage of public places with covert recordings inside washrooms in order to compile films for â€śsexual gratificationâ€ť since 2009.
The Ernst and Young employee was nabbed after a female colleague of Thomas found a device on which his image was recorded as he had placed the device. When police searched his home they found two more cameras.
