The employee accused of spying on a woman in a tanning bed at Planet Fitness in Beckley has been fired.
Planet Fitness’ Public Relations team released the following statement to WVVA News:
“We are aware of an incident that took place at our Beckley, West Virginia location and can confirm that the franchise owner is working closely with the local authorities to assist in their investigation. The safety and privacy of our members is our top priority and the employee in question has been terminated. For any additional questions we refer you to the appropriate local authorities.”
WVVA previously reported that a complaint was filed with the Beckley Police last week after a woman claimed someone was watching her while she was in one of the gym’s private tanning rooms.
Beckley Police said an employee has admitted to these actions. He revealed to police that he had a device that was capable of recording. As of right now police have not made an arrest, and the investigation is still ongoing.
