A 49-year-old Huntington Beach man was arrested on suspicion of voyeurism Tuesday for allegedly placing cameras in restrooms at Rancho Palos Verdes City Hall, a city where he worked as a building inspector, and a nearby business.
Detectives from the Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lomita Station arrested Andrew James Jensen about 2 p.m. after the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office filed a misdemeanor complaint against him alleging 89 counts of voyeurism, officials said.
“On July 5, 2018, a hidden miniature camera was discovered by a Rancho Palos Verdes city staffer in a unisex employee restroom,” according to a sheriff’s department statement. “A police report was filed and Lomita Station initiated a criminal investigation.
“It was determined that Jensen, who was a Rancho Palos Verdes building inspector, allegedly secreted the camera in the restroom at City Hall, and at a nearby local business. He is currently being booked and held at Lomita Sheriff’s Station in lieu of $450,000 bail.”
Anyone with additional information about Jensen was urged to call Detective Terence Peterson at (310) 891-3211.
