Spying case is a first for Macomb computer team

Steven Keller befriended his neighbors by saying he'd do a little work on their car.

Then, police said, he sneaked into their 10-year-old daughter's bathroom, hooked up a remote surveillance camera and began recording her without anyone's knowledge.

That's the scenario described Monday by Macomb County Sheriff Mark Hackel, who announced charges against Keller, 39, of Bruce Township in a first-of-its-kind arrest by the Macomb Area Computer Enforcement team.

"We've had people with cameras taking pictures of other people, or using the video cameras on their cell phones, but we've never had a remote camera ... monitoring someone's activity," Hackel said.
