A couple from Florida wanted to get away so they rented an AirBnB on Longboat Key, near Tampa Bay. Upon checking in, the husband noticed a tiny camera, one of two cameras in the home, hidden by the smoke detectors.
The homeowner, Wayne Natt, has been arrested and is currently out on bond for video voyeurism. He is set to be arraigned next month.
AirBnB confirms that Natt has had an account for two years with 40 reviews but he has not been banned from using the site.
"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," Benjamin Breit, a spokesperson for Airbnb, said in a 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.
