Voyeur landlord sentenced to a month in jail for filming tenant in toilet

A voyeuristic landlord would have gotten away with his peeping tom plans if he wasn’t so careless with his surveillance devices. 

34-year-old Goh Hoo Siang was sentenced to a month in jail yesterday for insulting the modesty of one of his tenants, committed in his Woodlands home last year, The New Paper reports. 

He had bought a thumbdrive with an attached pinhole camera from Sim Lim Square and decided to place it below the basin in the kitchen toilet to spy on his female tenants — two young Malaysian sisters. 

While one of them was having a shower, the surveillance device fell to the ground. The curious victim picked it up and plugged it into her computer, where she discovered her landlord’s voyeuristic intentions. 

The 25-year-old victim and her sister then left the flat to make a police report, leading to the landlord’s arrest.
