SEEKONK, Mass. (AP) - Massachusetts police say they were able to identify a man who hid a video camera in a women’s locker room because he captured himself on video while setting up the camera.

Police say the camera was discovered in a 24-hour Planet Fitness health club by a member Wednesday. The camera had been recording for more than 21 minutes when it was found.

Officers who examined the video say it shows the man setting up the hidden camera in the club at Seekonk. Gym employees identified the man as a club member.

Police say no one has been arrested.

The company says in a statement that the privacy of its members is extremely important and that the franchise owner in southeastern Massachusetts is cooperating with authorities.
