Voyeurism charges filed against vacation rental owner who secretly recorded guests in bed

A Florida man has been charged after an IN couple found a hidden camera IN his Airbnb property they were renting.

Talking to WFTS, Starnes said he now believes that the camera inside the doctored smoke detector caught him walking around Natt's condo while naked.

He says it comes down to where most people expect to have privacy - and a bedroom is one of them.

A Florida man is arrested for video voyeurism after a couple renting his home found video cameras hidden in smoke detectors.

Wayne Natt a Longboat Key, Florida homeowner has been arrested after allegedly using hidden cameras to secretly record guests at his Airbnb rental unit, with investigators saying the man may have been spying on his guests for almost a decade.

"We seized a lot of computer storage data devices", said Long Boat Key Police Lt. A similar smoke detector was found in the living room. Natt also claimed renters knew they were being filmed, according to Bourque.

Airbnb told ABC News that Natt had an account on its website for two years and had at least 40 reviews.

A screenshot of the listing 56-year-old Wayne Natt posted on Airbnb advertised a nice, large townhouse, but it never mentioned anything about hidden cameras.

'My wife and I are distressed by this situation, ' Starnes said.

Starnes shared a photo from the device with news organizations saying it might help other people recognize the room and come forward if they were unwittingly recorded. Some of the recovered videos date back as far as 2008.

Natt was released on bond but police said he could face more charges.

Last month, an IN man and his wife were staying at a Longboat Key condo they found on Airbnb at 623 Cedars Court.

An Airbnb spokesperson said they were outraged at the reports of what happened and that as soon as they were made aware, they permanently banned the individual from their community and supported the affected guests.

Responding to Natt's arrest, Airbnb released the following statement, 'Our team has reached out to local law enforcement to aid them with their investigation of this egregious offense and we hope justice is served. "We take privacy issues extremely seriously and have a zero-tolerance policy against this behavior", Breit added.

Natt lives in the home when it's not being rented out and told authorities the cameras are for his personal use and are not activated when guests are staying i his home.
