Computer technician arrested for secretly taking photographs of n*ked women

June 9, 2011 - Fullerton

Fullerton police has claimed to have arrested the computer technician Trevor Harwell, who allegedly installed a "spy-cam" on women's laptops that allowed him to secretly take their photographs while they were n*ked.

Sergeant Andrew Goodrich of the Fullerton Police Department said police has recovered several images that allowed them to identify six victims in Orange County, the Los Angeles Times reports.

All of the victims had their Macintosh laptops serviced by a company Rezitech Inc., which employed Harwell as a computer technician. He said there are also victims in Los Angeles County.

The case came to light after a Fullerton mother alerted authorities about a strange message on her daughter's computer that said: "You should fix your internal sensor soon. If unsure what to do, try putting your laptop near hot steam to clean the sensor."

Goodrich said Harwell through the message, tricked women to take laptops with them while they took showers.

Police forwarded their case to the Orange County district attorney's office.

Goodrich said potential victims should search the "Library/WebServer/Documents" directory for their laptop "camcapture" program.

Anyone who believes they may have come in contact with Harwell is asked to call Detective Kathryn Hamel at (714) 738-5327.
