Franchise owner of frozen yogurt locations in MA and NH indicted for planting hidden devices in bathrooms



A Massachusetts business owner was indicted this week on disturbing charges.

This past summer, members of the Nashua Police Department’s Uniform Field Operations Bureau responded to Tutti Frutti located within the Pheasant Lane Mall after a hidden recording device was located within a bathroom within the store. Detectives from the Special Investigations Division furthered the investigation.

According to police, it was determined that 42-year-old Chanphanou (Sab) Pou, of Hudson, New Hampshire, the franchise owner of multiple Tutti Frutti locations in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, purposefully concealed a hidden recording device within the store’s bathroom. As a result, Detectives applied for and were granted a warrant for Chanphanou Pou’s arrest.

On August 31, 2022, just after 6:15 p.m., members of the Nashua Police Department’s Problem Oriented Policing Unit arrested Chanphanou who was charged with three counts of Violation of Privacy (Class A Misdemeanor).

Each Class A Misdemeanor is punishable by up to one year in jail, exclusive of fines. Chanphanou was released on $500 cash bail, pending his arraignment at the Nashua District Court on October 3, 2022.

According to WMUR, Pou was indicted on the charges this last week of December.

The investigation is on-going and may involve multiple Tutti Frutti locations in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. The Nashua Police Department requests anyone with more information about this incident or any other potential suspicious incidents involving Chanphanou Pou or any of the Tutti Frutti locations to please contact the Nashua Police Department at (603) 594-3500 or the Crime Line at (603) 589-1665.
