Voyeur Jonathan Canavon spied on colleagues through secret camera in air freshener at BP oil refinery toilets on Isle of Grain

01 April 2014

A pervert who used his company credit card to buy a camera to spy on female colleagues in the toilet has been sent to prison for 10 months.
 
Jonathon Canavon bought the camera, disguised as an air freshener, and placed it in the women’s cubicle at the BP oil refinery on the Isle of Grain.
 
The 32-year-old was jailed today at Maidstone Crown Court and was placed on the sex offender's register for 10 years.

Canavon previously admitted voyeurism and 19 counts of theft totalling £7,595.40 from his employer at BP when he appeared before Medway magistrates, who chose to send the case to crown court for sentencing.
 
At an earlier hearing, the court heard his actions were discovered by one woman who spotted the freshener on a pipe while she was in the toilet and saw a blue light flashing.
 
She picked it up and found the camera inside.

After accessing the memory card and viewing it, she was horrified to discover images of Canavon placing the device inside the cubicle.
 
Canavon, of Chestnut Avenue, Grays, Essex, was arrested when he arrived for his night shift later that day.

Bosses discovered he’d been using the company credit card to buy the camera plus ‘extras’ at strip clubs in Essex and London. He was later sacked by BP.
 
“I thought he was a friend, I trusted him. I could have killed him when I realised it was him" - one of Canavon's victims
One of his two victims –  who we are not naming – spoke out after the previous hearing.
 
She said: “I thought he was a friend, I trusted him. I could have killed him when I realised it was him.
 
“The toilet is one place that should be private. It was disgusting to find out he’d been filming us."
