A woman alleged today she found a hidden camera in a restroom at the East Los Angeles Dollar Tree store, resulting in the manager’s arrest.

“My heart dropped,” 24-year-old Alexandria Sabori said at a news conference at the Pasadena office of her attorney.

Sabori said she found the camera Sept. 7 when she noticed a box with a hole in it inside the restroom. She said the manager went into the bathroom before she entered, telling her that he wanted to make sure it was clean and well-stocked.

Sabori left the store and contacted authorities, who subsequently arrested manager Carlos Martinez, 44, at the Whittier Boulevard store, according to Nolan and sheriff’s booking records.

“The manager had delayed Sabori’s use of the restroom until he could set up the videotaping device,” Nolan alleged.

Martinez was released on $25,000 bail the same day. A district attorney’s official was unable to immediately verify whether any criminal charges had been brought.
