 (KMOV) – A woman contacted News 4 after she noticed what appeared to be a security camera in clear view inside a dressing room at a south St. Louis County store.

Angie Davis was trying on clothes at the Dots store on Telegraph when she spotted a black bubble that usually hides a camera. She took several photos and sent them to News 4 in hopes of finding out if her and her 13-year-old daughter had been recorded while using the dressing room.

Davis said “I love the store, I love shopping there but to get in the dressing room and to have already changed into four different outfits. Then to look up and wonder did I just get watched is a really creepy feeling. “

News 4’s Steve Savard went to the store to get answers for Davis but was met with a store manager that would not talk. She directed him to speak with her corporate officials.

News 4 spoke with David Minnix, the Chief Store Officer for Dots in Ohio. He refused to allow News 4 to tape the interview but did say there is not a camera behind the black bubble.

Minnix offered for Davis to come back into the store and see for herself that the camera is not there.

He also added that the bubble will be removed in hopes that no other costumer would become concerned that they are being spied on in the dressing room.

The company released a statement to News 4 stating “As a company, we have the utmost integrity and ethical standards and would never compromise the privacy of our customers.”
