Man Charged With Putting Camera In Women's Changing Room At Target In Auburn Hills

(WWJ) Nathan Howard Wilson, 46, of Orion Township, drew attention at 4:43 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 19, 2020 from security when he  allegedly walked into the female fitting room at Target in Auburn Hills with several garments in his hand.

Once Wilson left the room, loss prevention staff went in and saw what they suspected: A camera had been installed. They immediately called the police.

Officers spotted Wilson, who was found to be in possession of other recording devices similar to what was placed in the fitting room. He was arrested and lodged at the Oakland County jail pending charges. 

Wilson was charged and arraigned at 52/3 District Court for allegedly installing a hidden camera inside a fitting room at Target.  He was charged with Surveilling an Unclothed Person 2nd offense (5 year felony), Capturing/Distributing Image of Unclothed Person (5 year felony), Eavesdropping – Installing/Using Device (2 year felony), and two counts of Using a Computer to Commit a Crime (4-10 year felony.)

Wilson was arraigned and bond was set at $50,000 cash, no 10% allowed, with GPs monitoring if he is released from jail.  

A preliminary exam conference has been scheduled for February 3, 2020 in front of Judge Carniak.  

Auburn Hills police are asking anyone who used the fitting rooms at the Target in Auburn Hills between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. Sunday to call them at 248-370-9460.

Officials are searching for one young teenage girl in particular because she was recorded by Wilson’s camera, according to authorities.

The girl left the store with an adult woman, possibly her mother, and got into the tan or silver Ford Escape, police said. The Escape has a sun roof and luggage bars.
