UPDATE: Mechanicsville Restaurant Owner Arrested For Security Cameras In Bathroom

MECHANICSVILLE, VA (WWBT) – The owner of a Mechanicsville restaurant is facing charges for having security cameras in the bathroom. Dennis Smith, 54, owns the Calabash Seafood Restaurant and Midway Lounge. Smith was arrested Wednesday, and charged with one count of unlawful videotaping. Smith says he’s dealt with repeated, expensive vandalism in the mens’ bathrooms of his restaurant. He says the cameras are legal, since they weren’t angled towards anyone’s private areas. However, Smith got backlash from some customers over privacy rights. Investigators seem to agree, after an investigation, and now charges. Cameras in bathrooms are legal in Virginia, according to NBC 12 legal analyst Steve Benjamin, as long as no one’s private areas are recorded. The owner’s wife says the cameras have been moved into the hallway of the restaurant. Smith is awaiting trial in Hanover County Circuit Court.

Family-Owned Restaurants Adopts Avigilon HD Surveillance System Source: Avigilon | Date: 12/04/2013 Related tags: Avigilon , NVR , surveillance cameras Profile Known for their signature Orange Crushes and expansive seafood menu, Mama’s on the Half Shell is the crown jewel of the Canton Square neighborhood in Baltimore, Maryland. Many locals venture to the establishment for a variety of occasions, whether it’s watching Baltimore Ravens games, celebrating a birthday or sticking around for late night drinks with friends. Just a few doors down stands two other restaurants in the Mama’s family: Nacho Mamas, a Mexican-themed restaurant, and The Pizza and Wing Factory, which is attached to Nacho Mamas and a popular takeout spot. Despite being open for nearly a decade, prior to deploying Avigilon Mama’s on the Half Shell had not implemented a video surveillance system, leaving the restaurant in a vulnerable state from a security standpoint. The restaurant’s ownership approached Unilux, the Maryland-based video surveillance distributor to help design an HD surveillance system for the three restaurants. The company recommended the Avigilon high-definition surveillance solution because of the unparalleled image quality the system provided, the ease-of-use of the ACC software and the efficient storage solutions. The Avigilon system was soon installed in all three restaurants. Challenge Deploy an elite high-definition video surveillance system that will minimize theft, monitor customer activity and ensure the safety of all patrons and employees for a trio of popular Baltimore-area restaurants. Solution As first-time surveillance system users, the owners of Mama’s on the Half Shell installed 14 Avigilon 1 MP […]
