FORT MYERS BEACH, FL.--WINK News is uncovering new details about a creepy crime in southwest Florida.

Detectives want to find the person who allegedly hid small cameras inside a Fort Myers Beach home, possibly spying on the people inside.

It happened on Bayview Drive just blocks away from the Matanzas Pass bridge.

A family of 15 from Indiana told deputies they found hidden cameras in private rooms throughout the rental home.

According to an incident report obtained by WINK News--a family member noticed a bathroom clock radio wasn't working, so he took it apart and found a camera where the speaker should've been.
They told deputies there was also a 16-gig memory card attached to the camera.

After searching the entire house, deputies discovered four more clock that may have cameras in bedrooms and bathrooms
The family told investigators a man who apparently maintained the home oddly visited multiple times during their stay to check appliances and other systems.

Local defense attorney, Scott Moorey,  says cameras outside a rental home are fine, but when they're inside, everything changes.

"As a property owner I would have a duty to inform my tenants of the equipment that it was in a location that would be presumed to be private," said Moorey.

WINK News did a quick Google search and sure enough, it seems anyone can buy tiny-hidden cameras.

"A crime is committed when he doesn't tell and he strategically locates cameras in a hidden place," said Moorey.

An attorney representing the property owner says the property owner had no idea about the hidden cameras.

The attorney also tells WINK News his client is cooperating with authorities and is not a suspect at this time.
