Barrington woman finds camera mounted to tree on her property


A Barrington resident called police at about 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 26, after she found a camera mounted on a tree on her White Birch Lane property.

Police officers stopped by the location — White Birch is near Rumstick Point — and removed the camera from the tree. Police said the device appeared to be a “hunter’s camera” designed for snapping photos when movement is detected.

Police also said there was some home construction taking place nearby and that the camera may have been installed as a security measure.
