Iowa record store owner indicted in hidden camera case

A West Des Moines record store owner accused of hiding a camera in the business’ bathroom and recording an underage girl is now under federal indictment.

Federal prosecutors say 48-year-old Robert Kuhn, the owner of Wayback Records, was indicted last week on a count of attempted production of child pornography. If convicted, he faces up to 30 years in federal prison.

On Tuesday, Kuhn was ordered detained pending trial after prosecutors say investigators had found videos of other females disrobing.

In late August, a girl who had worked for Kuhn told police she found a camera hidden on a shelf in the bathroom after Kuhn had asked her to try on dresses.

A public defender representing Kuhn said it’s his office’s policy not to comment on cases.

Delaware County man convicted in hidden camera case (USA)

A Delaware County man accused of using hidden cameras to target unsuspecting women and girls has been convicted on all charges.

Authorities say Vincent Kane, of Broomall, had more than 51,000 lewd images and video when he was arrested last year.

He allegedly used his job at a CVS in Broomall, as well as his time at Cardinal O’Hara High School and Villanova University, to create the material.

That included images from cameras hidden in bathrooms and ‘upskirting’ videos.

Investigators say he was also found to be in possession of child pornography.

Kane will be sentenced on charges, including invasion of privacy and child pornography, next month.
