Stephen Conacher denies allegations and says ‘the whole thing’s a misunderstanding’
A Toronto man has been charged with voyeurism after a model who works at a lingerie store allegedly found a camera inside a changing room, causing a police investigation.
The woman discovered the device in a changing room where she was changing for a photo shoot at “BCX” on Saturday, Toronto police said.
“When the woman realized she was actually being recorded she immediately notified management,” said police spokesperson Jake Smith.
First reported by Star, the woman’s photo session is not the first to be caught up in the device – Smith said similar instances had occurred in the past.

Toronto police reviewed the device and allege the video was able to capture intimate video on August 17.
The man, who police would not name, denied the allegations.
“The whole thing’s a misunderstanding,” he told CBC News. “It’s absolutely ridiculous that anyone could think something like this was going on.”
Smith said the women in the photo shoot were not injured and that the device had not been found in the changing room again.
Toronto police will not comment on the suspect’s gender. They also did not comment on whether the device may have been placed outside of the changing room to conceal it.
Conacher was arraigned in court on Tuesday morning.
