“Buc-ee’s Co-Founder’s Son Arrested for Secretly Recording Guests in Texas Lake House”

Allegations of Invasive Visual Recordings

Mitchell Wasek, the son of a co-founder of the popular convenience store chain Buc-ee’s, has been arrested on 28 separate state jail felony charges related to invasive visual recordings.

The charges stem from allegations that he secretly recorded numerous guests at his father’s multi-million-dollar Texas lake house.

28 Felony Charges and Disturbing Allegations

Wasek is now facing a total of 28 state jail felony charges for his alleged actions.

These charges pertain to the invasive recording of individuals who were using bathrooms and other facilities in the lake house and other properties.

The recordings reportedly captured individuals “using toilets, showering, changing clothes, and/or having sex.”

Discovery of Hidden Cameras

The dramatic series of events began when a phone complaint was lodged in May, suggesting improper photography at a property located on the banks of Lake Travis in Texas, which is owned by Donald Wasek, Mitchell’s father.

According to reports, a woman and her friends were visiting the property with Mitchell Wasek when they made a startling discovery—a concealed camera plugged into a bathroom wall with a charging port.

Startling Findings on Micro-Card

Upon retrieving the camera, they uncovered a micro-card that contained dozens of videos, some of which featured themselves and others in compromising situations within bedrooms and bathrooms at the lake house and Mitchell Wasek’s Dallas apartment.

The individuals captured in the recordings had no knowledge of their existence and had not consented to being recorded or photographed.

Scope of the Recordings

A subsequent investigation revealed the extensive nature of the recordings, with 68 movie files capturing at least 13 individuals in various private moments, including using toilets, showering, changing clothes, and intimate encounters.

The recordings spanned multiple locations, dating back to 2021, and included not only the Texas lake house but also properties in downtown Austin and Telluride, Colorado, owned by Mitchell Wasek’s parents.

Alleged Amazon Purchases of Spy Cameras

Investigators reportedly linked Mitchell Wasek to the purchase of “spy cameras” through Amazon records.

The complainants confirmed that Mitchell Wasek was present during the offenses, but no other member of the Wasek family was implicated in these incidents.

Legal Proceedings and Bail

Following his arrest in Travis County, Mitchell Wasek was released from jail after posting a $280,000 bail. The case has attracted significant attention due to its disturbing nature and the involvement of a prominent family associated with the Buc-ee’s convenience store chain.

Buc-ee’s Background

Founded in 1982, Buc-ee’s is renowned for its pristine bathrooms and has grown to operate 34 stores across Texas, including the world’s largest convenience store, along with 12 locations in other states.

Donald Wasek, one of the co-founders, joined the business three years after its inception, as reported by Forbes in 2017.
