A camera that was hidden in a ceiling vent in a residential property owned by a Chicago-area businessman was removed by police Monday and taken into evidence.
The Chicago Police Department said officers were called to the building, on the 1100 block of West Eddy Street, on Monday afternoon after a woman reported finding the camera in her bedroom.
The building houses three condominiums, all of which are owned by Patrick J. Cunningham, city records show. Cunningham owns a number of properties and businesses and is involved with the Chicago Athletic Clubs.
It wasn't clear by Tuesday afternoon which unit contained the hidden camera, but Cunningham purchased the three units throughout 2013. Records show he first purchased Unit 3 in June, followed by Unit 1 in July and Unit 2 in September of that year.
All of the purchases were made from separate owners, and it wasn't immediately clear if those previous owners were now tenants.
NBC Chicago has reached out to Cunningham for comment.
