WHITE MARSH, Md. (WJZ)—Right now Baltimore County Police are trying to track down an alleged peeping tom. He’s accused of spying on people using a men’s bathroom at a Home Depot.

Adam May spoke to a man stunned to see someone watching him.

Talk about the ultimate invasion of privacy, and police have no idea how many people were victimized.

“I thought like I was seeing things,” said Jimmy Furr.

Furr got the shock of a lifetime while using the restroom at a Home Depot in White Marsh.

“I heard a thump in the ceiling, and I looked up and I seen a hole and I thought I seen an eye, so I stood up and seen an eye looking at me. Then someone took toilet paper and started shoving toilet paper in the hole to clog the hole up,” Furr said.

Furr took pictures of the bathroom, showing repairs to the ceiling.  And outside the bathroom is a storage closet, where Furr says he found a man standing on a ladder.

When Furr confronted the guy, “He turned around, surprised that I was there, and I said ‘I know you were in the ceiling.’ He said ‘It’s OK. Just leave, just leave.’ I said, ‘I’m not leaving the store,’” Furr said.

Furr says a manager questioned the peeper.

He worked for a cleaning crew hired by Home Depot.

“This is the first time I’ve heard of this,” said Cpl. John Wachter.

Baltimore County Police say they have interviewed witnesses and collected evidence from the store.

“There is an individual we’re looking at,” Wachter said. “It remains to be seen if he is the suspect or not.”

Home Depot says they find this absolutely despicable and they have launched a thorough investigation to ensure nothing like this happens again.

Furr wonders if the man had a camera, how long the peep-hole was in the bathroom, and if more peeping toms are out there.

“As a contractor, I’m on the road a lot, use a lot of public restrooms, and that’s never crossed my mind before,” Furr said. “Now every time I go in a restroom, I’m gonna think about that.”

Police say they’re getting close to wrapping up their investigation. They’re planning to consult with the state’s attorney to determine charges.

Experts say peeping toms usually suffer from a sexual disorder known as voyeurism.
