On June 22nd, a Whataburger customer using a women’s bathroom says she found a small camera lens inside the stall.

The woman, who didn’t want to be identified, told KTXS News,"When I flushed the toilet, I noticed an unusual small circle under the rim of the toilet lid. I looked closer and realized it was a camera lens!"

The woman called the police and they said they are looking for whoever place the camera inside the toilet.

The victim says that all women need to be aware of their surroundings and look for anything unusual.
