Police said a mother didn't realize until the next morning that she had left her 3-year-old at a corn maze the night before. No charges have been laid against the parents yet, but local police say the case is still being investigated.

Natt told investigators after his arrest that everyone captured on the camera had given him consent to be filmed during consensual sex parties at the residence. There are also certain apps that claim they can detect hidden cameras.

"I suspect there are other victims, it's just a matter of identifying them or not", Bourque told WFLA. However, investigators say his AirBNB listing was active for two years and there could be hundreds of victims.

"He says that everybody videoed had learning he was videoing them", Bourque said.

John Jordan, manager of Spook Tech Spy Shop on Atlantic Boulevard in Jacksonville said cameras can be installed in a variety of every day items like photo frames, surge protectors, smoke detectors, alarm clocks and stuffed animals. However, police say the cameras can be operated remotely and they recovered numerous video files, including one of the IN couple who sounded the alarm.

"He said it was for recording sexual activity, and his only response was it gave him a better angle", Bourque said.

"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", Airbnb officials said.

"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".

The statement went on to say that Airbnb takes "privacy issues extremely seriously".
