Shoppers beware! There's a chance youre being watched by someone other than the standard mall security guard.

A female employee at the Gap in Mission Viejo found a camera in one of the store's dressing rooms Aug. 11, reports CBS. Obscured by black tape, the device -- which only measures about .5 by two inches -- was affixed to a picture frame, according to the Orange County Register and CBS.

While the Sheriff's Department was immediately notified, authorities are still unsure who hid the camera and how long it had been there.

As Jim Amormino, spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's Department, told the Los Angeles Times, "I'm sure it took some planning to do. Obviously, it's a sick individual."
