RICHMOND, Va. — A landlord is accused of spying on a couple in their bedroom with a camera hidden inside of a clock radio.
According to WTVR, a man and his girlfriend moved into an apartment subleased from Tomas Arnaiz in 2012. The clock radio was included in the fully-furnished home.
According to a $1.3 million lawsuit filed in late December, the couple says they found out they were being secretly recorded in various stages of undress, while using the bathroom and during their most intimate moments.
The victims discovered they were being filmed when they finally noticed that a clock radio, that had previously been unplugged to plug in a guitar amp, had several times been re-positioned and plugged back into the outlet.
Richmond Police arrested Arnaiz, who was indicted last July, and recovered hours of recordings. He’s charged with unlawful filming of a minor, reproducing child porn and producing obscene materials with a minor because the man’s girlfriend was under 18 when she was recorded.
Arnaiz is due in court February 27 for his trial on the felony charges.
