The tanning salon tells 7 Action News that they are investigating an isolated incident of cameras being found in the salon. They say they are not sure they were operable and are confident that this was an outside job.
They say they will work to find out who did this and prosecute to the fullest extent.
The business later released this statement and certification of inspection to 7 Action News.
We are continuing to work with local law enforcement to find the person responsible for such a horrific act and, while we believe this to be an isolated incident by an individual, all Chili Pepper’s Tanning locations are being swept to ensure your protection and privacy. We will post updates as the police give us more information as this is an ongoing investigation. We appreciate your patience.
