LONGBOAT KEY, Fla. -- A man living near Sarasota, accused of secretly recording tourists in his condo, could be facing more charges if more victims come forward.

Police in Longboat Key are looking for additional victims who stayed at the man's Airbnb condo.

The owner, Wayne Natt, was charged with video voyeurism after an Indiana couple found a camera hidden in a smoke detector in the master bedroom.

Police recovered videos dating back to 2008 and they're working to identify the victims.

“We have discovered three more people that are victims of the video voyeurism case.  It’s definitely a serious violation and people are creeped out they have been seen on these videos and horrified," says Lt. Robert Bourque of the Longboat Key Police Department.

Natt told police that the cameras are for his personal use and are not activated when guests are present.

He is now out on bond.

Airbnb says it is outraged about the charges and has permanently banned Natt.
