Man Arrested for Camera Placed in South FL Hospital Bathroom

What to Know

  • The camera was discovered in the bathroom at St. Mary’s Hospital back on Oct. 3.

Police have arrested the man they say was involved in a camera being found in the employee restroom of a Palm Beach County hospital.

NBC affiliate WPTV-TV said that Rudelmiro Perez was arrested Monday by Homeland Security officers as he tried to board a plane in Houston, Texas while trying to leave the country.

The camera was discovered in the bathroom at St. Mary’s Hospital back on October 3. Police said images showing bathrooms were found on the camera but detectives needed help identifying where the images came from since they don’t match any in the hospital.

One of the images showed an ID card, but detectives have not said if that helped them find Perez or what charges he is facing at this time.
