Officers with the help of loss prevention staff made contact with Wilson at the exit to the store.

The investigation revealed that Wilson entered the store, selected some clothing, and entered into one of the fitting rooms. It is alleged that he placed a recording device in one of the rooms. Once Wilson left the room, loss prevention staff confirmed that a camera had been installed and immediately called the police. Wilson was found to be in possession of other recording devices, similar to what was placed in the fitting room. Subsequently, Wilson was arrested and lodged at the Oakland County jail pending charges.

Investigators from Auburn Hills, with the assistance of the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at Wilson’s home in Orion Township. Evidence seized in the search warrant will be examined as part of this investigation.

We are asking that if you were at the Target in Auburn Hills on Sunday afternoon, between 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm and utilized one of the fitting rooms, to please call the Auburn Hills Police Department at 248-370-9460. In one particular instance during this time frame a young teenage girl was recorded using the fitting room. She was last seen leaving the store with an adult woman and another person, possibly her mother, and getting into a tan or silver colored Ford Escape. The vehicle has a sun roof and luggage bars on the roof. If you know who this person is we ask that you please contact Auburn Hills Police.

We also advise the public to be vigilant when using fitting rooms at any store. It is advised to examine the room before changing, to ensure that there are no recording devices secretly installed. Some recording devices (cameras) can be as small as the end of a pen or the size of a camera used on a laptop computer. We are also urging businesses who have fitting rooms to regularly inspect the rooms to ensure that no one has tampered with or installed a recording device. If you notice anything unusual, please call the police immediately.

We want to commend the loss prevention staff at Target for immediately recognizing the suspect’s suspicious behavior and for looking into it further. There is no doubt that their actions prevented other people from being victimized by this suspect.
