CHICAGO -- Chicago police are investigating the discovery of a hidden recording device in a Wrigleyville apartment.

A large contingent of Chicago police descended on a 3-story building in the 1100 block of West Eddy.  Patrol officers and investigators looked at wiring on the side of the building.

They obtained a search warrant to carefully inspect the condo building after a woman told investigators that she found a tiny hidden camera in a ceiling vent in her bedroom.

Area North detectives are leading the investigation.  Very few details are being shared by police and there are no reports of any suspects in custody.

According to public records and other sources, the 3-flat condo building is owned by Patrick Cunningham, who also owns Chicago Athletic Clubs -- a network of 6 athletic clubs in Chicago and Evanston.  He has so far not returned phone calls from WGN.

Cunningham has not been charged or accused of any wrongdoing.

Neighbors who did not want to go on camera told WGN police have been called to this property in the past for various reasons, including extremely loud parties.  One neighbor said her house next door to the building actually shook.  Neighbors have filed numerous complaints.
