Upon inspection, a detective found two cameras had been installed under the sinks in the bathroom and a camera had been mounted to point at the toilet, the complaint stated.

An investigation revealed Nixon had been shopping on the internet for "micro SD cards, waterproof camcorders and accessories, and battery packs, specific to the type of camera that was installed in the bathroom from June 19th to July 17th," according to the complaint.
