RAYTOWN, Mo. — A Missouri mother used a hidden camera to catch her boyfriend allegedly taking nude photos of the woman’s 6-year-old daughter, police said.
Joshua Bibby, 30, was charged with sexual exploitation of a minor after police said he allegedly pulled down the girl’s pants and took a photo of her genitals.
According to the probable cause statement obtained by WDAF, the mother told police she hid a camera in her daughter’s toy and captured video of Bibby removing her daughter’s underwear and taking photos of her genitals.
After placing the camera in her daughter’s room with a clear view of the bed, the mother and her friend left the home to “run an errand.” A few minutes later, Bibby apparently entered the girl’s room and the hidden camera captured Bibby taking photos of the girl’s private area, investigators said.
The mother took screenshots of the hidden camera photos on her phone and called police.
The mother told police she had been suspicious of Bibby in recent months, which prompted her to install the hidden camera. She said there was a prior incident where the girl apparently awoke to Bibby sleeping next to her with his hand down her pants. The mother told police she repeatedly found Bibby sleeping in her daughter’s room.
Bibby ‘s bond was set at $200,000 and he is due back in court on June 1. He was also ordered to have no contact with children before his court date.
