Man accused of hiding cameras in child’s bathroom, bedroom

UPDATE @ 12 p.m.:

A 53-year-old Beavercreek man is accused of hiding cameras in the bedroom and bathroom of a child and now he’s facing charges for the alleged crime.

Jack MacKenzie is charged with  illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material, possession of criminal tools and voyeurism. He pleaded not guilty to the charges earlier this month in Greene County Common Pleas Court.

According to a statement of facts, MacKenzie was said to have hidden a camera in the child’s alarm clock, a false outlet and a USB charging port.  Both the USB charging port and false outlet cameras were placed in the bathroom.

“Both cameras were placed in sensitive areas within the bathroom that would have captured inappropriate photographs of anyone using the restroom,” the statement of facts, which was filed by a Beavercreek police detective, read.

We’ve reached out to MacKenzie’s attorney for comment, but haven’t heard back.

The victim in the case is known to MacKenzie.

Police seized several items from MacKenzie’s home while conducting a search warrant of his Beavercreek home, after officers were alerted to the possible crimes by a relative. Several pictures and videos were found on at least one of the items seized, the document read.

A day after the search warrant was served MacKenzie attempted to harm himself and was admitted to a local hospital for treatment, according to the statement of facts.
