    A woman living in a Fairfax County, Virginia, apartment found a camera in her bathroom, and police are seeking for the building’s maintenance man.

    Police said the woman called them after finding what is believed to be a motion-sensor-activated hidden camera in her bathroom. They believe the camera was installed after the maintenance man, identified as Adnan Dzubur, came into the woman’s apartment at The Julian at Fair Lakes to fix a power outage.

    “The power went out in her apartment, so she called maintenance,” said Fairfax County police spokesman Don Gotthardt. “The maintenance guy came to the apartment. [He] was able to get the power back on, and after he left, she went into her bathroom and found some type of device sitting there. She described it as some type of USB device.”

    A motion-activated camera like this was found in the woman's bathroom.

    Police said the woman contacted Dzubur, and he told her it was monitoring equipment and said she should shower to “ensure the water would not affect the electrical system.”

    The woman told investigators that his instructions didn’t feel right, so she contacted police.

    Police said Dzubur has not been arrested, because they can’t find him. 

    “We’re trying to find him,” said Gotthardt. “We think there’s a possibility that he might have left the country.”

    Investigators found evidence that leads them to think there may be more victims at the apartment building. They searched his apartment and found 90 other images, showing other potential victims.

    Dzubur was fired, and is wanted now for unlawful filming.

    Anyone who has information on Dzubur's whereabouts, or was the victim of a similar incident, is asked to call police at 703-591-0585 or 703-691-2131.
