Paramedic arrested in connection with hidden camera allegations

A B.C. paramedic is facing some serious allegations in a voyeurism investigation involving female employees.

The man was arrested at the 100 Mile House ambulance station.

There are unconfirmed reports that a paramedic hid a camera in the women’s washroom at the ambulance station and was arrested while looking at pictures from the camera on his computer, presumably photos of his colleagues.

However, Prince George RCMP and E Division headquarters refuse to comment on camera on the investigation, claiming there are bans in place.

RCMP have not been able to produce a court file number or say who issued the bans.

The BC Ambulance Service has also refused to comment on camera to Global News, saying they were told by RCMP “a staff member in 100 Mile House was arrested at the station on March 29, 2014. This individual is not the unit chief. The employee was not on duty when he was arrested. Service to the community has been maintained.”

The BC Ambulance Service says the paramedic is now off-duty while the police investigate.

There is also an unconfirmed report that there was a hidden camera at a local gym in 100 Mile House.

However, RCMP and the BC Ambulance Service refuse to comment on the gym camera allegation.
