Re­ports: Airbnb host hid cam­eras

Tampa Bay Times - - Local - Times staff and wires

When an In­di­ana cou­ple ar­rived at their Long­boat Key Airbnb rental last month, they found some­thing in the bed­room they didn’t ex­pect: a hid­den cam­era. Ac­cord­ing to pub­lished re­ports, Derek Starnes said he and his wife no­ticed a small hole in the smoke de­tec­tor on the ceil­ing of their Airbnb bed­room the day af­ter they checked into the condo. Starnes re­moved the de­vice and found a mi­cro­phone and a cam­era hid­den in­side. When of­fi­cers ar­rived, they found another cam­era hid­den in the condo’s liv­ing room, ac­cord­ing to re­ports. The home­owner, Wayne Natt, 56, was ar­rested and faces one charge of video voyeurism. Natt re­port­edly ad­mit­ted to film­ing dozens of sex acts, but claimed that par­tic­i­pants were aware of the cam­eras. Au­thor­i­ties said there could be more charges if the rest of the seized footage cap­tured un­know­ing guests.
