Man: My wife and I were secretly filmed at our Airbnb rental

Man: My wife and I were secretly filmed at our Airbnb rental

Police have recovered pictures and videos from a vacation rental in Florida that had hidden cameras pointing directly at the bed.

A couple from IN, renting an Airbnb on Longboat Key, said they noticed something weird about one of the smoke detectors IN the master bedroom.

The man noticed a black dot on the smoke detector that he thought looked a little odd and sure enough, his instinct was right.

"My wife and I are distressed by this situation", Starnes told the TV station.

"We did have the opportunity to analyze what was on the SD card and there are a couple of different people on them", said Longboat Key Police Lt. Robert Bourque.

He says it comes down to where most people expect to have privacy - and a bedroom is one of them. "And I think the answer to most people is you absolutely do", said Green. Bounce Bourque said. "We don't know whether there are neighborhood casualties somebody who may have been dating him or a partner that doesn't understand they are being recorded, and afterward we have the opposite side of who he leased to through Airbnb".

Wayne Natt, 56, was later arrested and charged with one count of video voyeurism.

Starnes said the Airbnb unit had more than 40 reviews.

"We seized a lot of computer storage data devices, hard drives, computers, laptops SD cards anything that would store data". However, investigators say his AirBNB listing was active for two years and there could be hundreds of victims.

"I suspect there are other victims, it's just a matter of identifying them or not", Bourque told WFLA.

After Natt's arrest police said he gave them a statement with his lawyer present.

Police found two smoke detector cameras in Natt's home. "He said it was for recording sexual activity".

Bourque said the cameras "were also Wi-Fi capable so they beam a signal, (Natt) didn't have to wire them in". However, police say the cameras can be operated remotely and they recovered numerous video files, including one of the IN couple who sounded the alarm. He claimed he was a swinger and had recorded dozens of videos of sexual activity on the property, but with the subjects' knowledge.

"We are outraged at the reports of what happened; as soon as we were made aware, we permanently banned this individual from our community and fully supported the affected guests".

ABC Action News reached out to Airbnb for comment.
