Houston woman's warning after finding tracking device in her car and hidden camera in bathroom - ABC13 Houston

A man has been arrested and charged with putting a camera in the bathroom of an apartment he shared with a female roommate, but that’s not all.

Houston police also believe the man placed a GPS tracker on the woman’s car.

Saman Shams, 39, is out of jail on a personal bond. He is charged with invasive visual recording, a felony, and unlawful installation of a tracking device, a misdemeanor.

Neither Shams nor his court-appointed attorney responded to ABC13’s request for comment.

“I’m still freaking out. I don’t know how long he’s been watching me. I’m really anxious and disgusted,” said the 23-year-old former roommate, who asked to remain anonymous.

According to court records, Shams put a camera in the bathroom at the apartment on Schumacher Lane, where the victim rented a room from him.

She said she discovered it last week just before she took a shower. It looked like a charger until she opened it up and found a SIM card.

“I took it over here and put it in a reader and saw pictures and videos of myself,” she said. “It’s weird and it’s creepy.”
