(Editor's note: We started requesting the incident report on this arrest last week after Spiotto was arrested. The public information officer for the FSPD was out of the office all week long and we did not get the incident report until this morning.)

An employee for the North 62nd Street (Kelley Highway) Walmart was arrested last week on one count of Video Voyeurism in a Private Place after he placed a camera in an employee restroom, according to information from the Fort Smith Police Department.

Jacob Matthew Spiotto of Fort Smith was arrested last Thursday on the state felony charge after a female employee found the small video camera attached to the back of the toilet in the automotive center of the store.

According to the information from the report the camera was located after Spiotto placed it in there at the beginning of his shift at 10 am and the only people who had access to the facility were store employees. It is not know how many people used the rest room before the camera was spotted.

The employee who found the camera turned it over to her manager and he gave the camera to the in-store loss prevention officers. The FSPD was called out and arrived at at 2:23 p.m. The responding officer was approached in the store by Spiotto who admitted he had placed the camera in the restroom. When asked why he placed the camera in the restroom be replied "perversion".

This is the complete officer narrative from the police report:

According to booking information on the Sebastian County Detention Center website, Spiotto bonded out of jail this afternoon (June 28) at 1:14 p.m on a $5000 bond after a hearing.
