Natt has been renting his place on Airbnb for two years and has more than 40 reviews on Airbnb.

A couple visiting from IN discovered the cameras-one IN the bedroom and one IN the living room-on September 1, just a day after arriving, and reported them to police.

He also pointed INSIDER to Airbnb's rules about electronic surveillance devices, which clearly state that hosts must "fully disclose" the presence of any security cameras "at or around" their properties.

A tiny camera hidden in a smoke detector in a room rented through the hospitality service Airbnb was meant to record private sex parties and not tenants, according to the unit's owner.

"We seized a lot of computer storage data devices", said Lt. He has since been arrested and charged with video voyeurism. Starnes told WFTS that re are shots on which he goes naked through bedroom. There was another similar smoke detector in the living room. Starnes says Airbnb needs to do more to keep this type of thing from happening.

'We don't know if there are local victims someone who may have been dating him or a companion that doesn't realize they are being videotaped, and then we have the other side of who he rented to through Airbnb'.

Starnes shared a photograph he removed the gadget that shows him and his significant other gazing up at the camera.

People who have stayed at the house located at 623 Cedars Court in Longboat Key, are urged to come forward.

"My wife and I are distressed by this situation", Starne said.

Starnes said they were "freaked out" and called the police.

Natt is now out of jail on bond, but may face additional charges if more victims are found.

"He says that everyone videoed had knowledge he was videoing them", Bourque told WFTS.

In a statement to ABC, Airbnb said that they were "outraged" by the reports of a hidden camera. Bourque said Natt's reason for hiding it in the ceiling "was it gave him a better angle".

"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", Breit said.

Natt has since been released on bail, but may face additional charges. We take privacy very seriously and have this attitude towards zero tolerance.
