TORONTO „Ÿ A senior CBC filmmaker faces accusations he hid cameras in his Toronto apartment and captured images of unaware guests in their most intimate moments.

Toronto Police investigators executed a search warrant Thursday at downtown apartment of Ian Campbell, a 61-year-old associate director with the CBC's Toronto-based documentary unit.

A couple that had been staying at Campbell's apartment while he was away allegedly found numerous cameras hidden in various rooms, including the bedroom and bathroom, according to police.

Const. David Hopkinson alleged the cameras were set up in areas "where the most private and intimate moments of our lives would be captured.h Video and still photos of the man and woman were captured in the apartment, according to investigators.

The accusations come just months after another CBC employee was hit with similar allegations.

Police arrested and charged David Sealy, 56, a long-time CBC Sports floor director, in October 2013 for allegedly using spy cameras in his Richmond St. condo unit to secretly film female guests. Sealy is next due in court Aug. 1.
