Man accused of putting hidden camera in Starbucks bathroom turns himself in

SHERWOOD, Ore. – A man accused of placing a hidden camera inside a Sherwood Starbucks bathroom turned himself in on Tuesday.

Richard Eugene Ipsen, 59, of Tualatin, faces eight counts each of invasion of privacy and attempted invasion of privacy, police said. He turned himself in the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

Police said on May 1, a Starbucks employee found an AC adapter with a hidden camera inside of it. Police released photos of the device on Tuesday.

Police released surveillance photos from Starbucks during their investigation, which included a person of interest they were looking for. Tips from the public helped police identify Ipsen as the suspect.

Sherwood police said during their investigation they learned there were additional victims at a home owned by Ipsen in Bend, Ore.

Sgt. Chris Carney with Bend police said officers served a search warrant at the home and found evidence that house guests were being recorded while they were using the toilet and shower.

Ipsen has not been charged with any crimes related to the Bend police investigation at this time, Carney said.
