    An employee at a Grapevine restaurant found a hidden camera inside a public restroom.

    The camera was found at the Braum's, located at 1300 S. Main Street. The manager of the restaurant reported the incident to police who said the device was found disguised as an electrical outlet but seemed to stick out of the wall abnormally.

    Forensic examination of the camera revealed photos of a man who police said could be the person who installed the hidden camera.

    “The angle of the photographs — he was looking directly at the device, which would give us reason to believe he's a potential suspect,” Sgt. Robert Eberlin said.

    Besides the pictures of the man, police said there were other images on the camera.

    Police believe the camera was found a week ago, the same day they believe it was hidden in the women’s restroom. 

    “We are not sure if he has placed any devices in other locations," said Eberling. "We would like to find that out.”

    Hillary Staley, a frequent Braum's customer, was upset when she heard about the hidden camera.

    “It is shocking," Staley said. "I have gone in there several times with my children after coming for ice cream, so yes, it’s horrible.” 

    Police told NBC 5 Friday night they have received several tips, but at this time have not made any arrests.

    If anyone has information about the man in the photos, please contact the Grapevine Police Department.
