Police seize surveillance equipment from Chelsea landlord


Police have executed a search warrant at a Chelsea home after a woman complained that her landlord broadcast naked images of himself on a closed-circuit television monitor in the upscale boarding house.

The Citizen has learned that the tenant, in statements to Quebec police, also said she discovered a camera hidden in an unoccupied room in the rooming house, its lens directed at the doors to her bathroom and bedroom.

The police search, conducted by officers from the MRC des Collines force, was executed at Xavier Chouart’s home on Highway 105, just north of Gatineau on Feb. 11.

Mr. Chouart, 48, told the Citizen that he installed the camera as an anti-theft measure. He said the accusation that he exposed himself is “completely false.”
