A Hernando business executive is out on bond but is facing charges in connection with the discovery of a hidden camera in the women’s restroom of his business.
Police Chief Scott Worsham said 23-year-old David Hunter Moore has been charged with photographing for a lewd purpose.
Moore is the president and CEO of the Moore Advanced, part of a national staffing firm based in Hernando at 2765 Highway 51 South.
Moore Advanced’s clients, according to its website, include FedEx Supply Chain, Gildan, Hoover Vacuums, MIlwaukee Tools and Walmart. The company offers staffing, lumping and value-added services to corporations across the nation, its website reads.
It has located across the country, primarily based in the South and Southeast, Northeast, Midwest, California and Arizona.
An employee reported to police the discovery of a device in the women’s restroom that resembled a phone charger and with a blue light blinking. She believed it to be a camera and went to police.
A warrant was issued and, according to Worsham, investigators found that camera and other recording devices at the business.
“We recovered two additional recording devices that were not in use at the time but they were used for the same purpose,” Worsham said.
