Phoenix Woman Snapped Pics of Other Women in Bathrooms "Throughout the Valley," Cops Say



Bad news: Police say a woman secretly videotaped and took pictures of other women inside public restrooms across the Valley.

Worse news: Police say the woman then posted and/or sold the pictures and videos on the Internet.

Although Phoenix PD booked 37-year-old Linda Laibe into jail on 38 counts of voyeurism, police say detectives don't know the identities of many of the victims.

Phoenix Police Sergeant Trent Crump says the photos and videos were taken in restrooms "throughout the Valley."

Restroom locations include spots where many people have likely been since May, when Laibe allegedly started taking the photos.

Police list Chase Field, University of Phoenix stadium, a Rainforest Cafe, and Walmart stores among the places Laibe secretly snapped the photos and videos.

So, if you've ever seen the lady in the photo below in a bathroom, police ask that you call the Family Investigations Unit at 602-534-2121 and ask for Detective Curley.
