SpyCam Story #497 - Ming (no relation) Pinged

Singapore - A woman was about to undress when she spotted something on top of a bathroom cabinet in a Choa Chu Kang flat last December. When the 31-year-old, who had been renting a room in the unit, took a closer look, she discovered a pinhole-camera, hidden among some buckets on top of the cabinet...

A length of wire attached to the camera led to the master bedroom where it was linked to a computer. The woman immediately told her six other room-mates about her discovery and confronted private school student Toh Tong Ming, 26, who slept in the bedroom. She later made a police report. It is not known how long Toh had been living in the flat, which is owned by his uncle.

Yesterday, he was sentenced in a district court to three weeks' jail for insulting the modesty of the tenant. (more)
