 PCSO Computer Crimes Detectives Arrest Lakeland Man for 15 Counts Video Voyeurism 


On Thursday, October 16, 2014, Polk County Sheriff's deputies obtained an arrest warrant for 35-year-old Armando Perez, of 7482 Briarbay Loop in Lakeland, for 15 counts Video Voyeurism (F-3); he was located in Apopka later that day and placed under arrest by Apopka P.D. He is currently in the Orange County Jail.

According to the affidavit, on October 16th, PCSO deputies responded to the residence in reference to a woman in the home who discovered a camera that had been set up in her bedroom without her knowledge. The victim was turning on a television when she pushed a button on the remote control that changed the television input to "computer." At that time, the victim saw a live image of her own bedroom on the television. PCSO Computer Crimes detectives responded and dismantled an extensive hidden video recording system in woman’s bedroom, which was connected to a DVR and personal computer. There were two pinhole cameras set up in the victim’s bedroom – one was hidden in a smoke detector and one was hidden in a cable access plate.

Armando Perez owns the personal computer attached to the cameras. Detectives located 15 separate video files dating back to May 15, 2014. The files contain videos of the victim dressing and undressing and privately exposing her body.
