A child in Tennessee won a teddy bear at the Wilson County Fair, but when mom examined the stuffed animal, she discovered “what appeared to be a camera” inside. She was understandably upset and reported it to the Lebanon Police Department so they could investigate.
In a Facebookpost, police confirm they examined the bear and found the camera, which they say included “a lens and a board, but was not functional” and didn’t have a power source. They think the toy could have been previously returned to a store or was a damaged item that was “packaged for discount resale.” Another theory is that the stuffed toy “may have been a ‘nanny cam’ that was returned.”
Officers talked to the booth operator where the child won the prize and he said the bear was part of a bulk order from a discount facility in Georgia. Police say no other bears like it were found at the booth and they don’t suspect illegal activity at this time.
