I had a problem with a neighbor and last summer they send a private detective to get pictures of me and talk with managers of dept store about me. After that everything cools down but again I recently bought a new house and see some of the stuff they put in the walls. So I bought something to detect bugs and cameras and i found a few thigs.

Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX the additional information.

It is clearly illegal to secretly record you in your home without a warrant. It is a violation of state and federal law. You can contact the local prosecutor's office, as well as the Texas Attorney General.

They will investigate and take appropriate action. Do not disturb the equipment until law enforcement officers have an opportunity to examine it. It is evidence. And your home would be a crime scene.

It is my privilege to assist you. Let me know if you need further information.  I hope I have helped you beyond your expectations in the service I have provided to you.  I am here for you.

do i need in my hands that warrant or at least knowledge of it.

No, you would not be told if there was a warrant from law enforcement. That would defeat its purpose. You would not find out unless there was a trial and they tried to introduce evidence gathered from the surveillance.

Also, a private citizen can not get a warrant for surveillance.

Thank you.
