Concealed camera found in courtroom office


SEBRING -- Employees in courtroom 309 discovered a concealed camera, and Preston H. Colby and the Highlands County Sheriff's Office (HCSO) are trying to discover why.

The camera, discovered by court employee Amy Peebles and cleaning staff on Jan. 23 in a vent, was photographed by a camera phone and reported to the HCSO.

According to an invoice from Tiger Direct, the camera in question, a Linksys model WVC200 Wireless Internet Camera with Audio was purchased on Jan. 16 and shipped to Brian Franza, 10th Circuit (Court) of Florida.
