LONGBOAT KEY – Longboat Key Police said Wayne Natt
was hit with more felony charges after additional victims came forward
saying they were secretly recorded nude in his condo.
Natt owns a condo
at 623 Cedars Court. He frequently rented it out over
the website, Airbnb.
Recently, a couple vacationing from Indiana discovered a
hidden camera and microphone inside a smoke detector in
the master bedroom. There was also another hidden camera
in a smoke detector in the living room.
Police discovered the camera captured video of the
couple. When they further investigated, they found many
videos dating back to 2008.
Natt explained to detectives that he is a swinger and he uses the hidden
cameras to record sex parties. He insisted his partners were aware of
the recording and he claimed the cameras were turned off while Airbnb
guests were present.
However, police say that is not the case. Since News
Channel 8 aired a story last month, numerous people have come forward
saying they were recorded without their knowledge.
Natt now faces a total
of four felony charges, but officials expect many more
charges to come.
They are still working to identify victims in the recovered
videos. Some of the victims are from his sex parties, but
many are also from his Airbnb rentals.
“We’re just kinda going down, methodically going through
these systems and identifying people and speaking to them to
see if they did have knowledge whether they were being
videotaped or not,” said Lt. Bourque.
In the meantime, the Town of Longboat Key is beginning the process of
seizing the property from Wayne Natt. Town officials will not condone
“We’re all in support of that, making a good example of a bad thing,”
said local resident Bob Bunting.
