LAS VEGAS >> A Las Vegas homeowner is accused of using hidden cameras to spy on short-term tenants staying in his home.

KSNV-TV reports that Christopher Rogers, 43, pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to five misdemeanor counts of capturing an image of private area of another person in connection to cameras he had inside his Airbnb rental.

In surveillance video obtained by KSNV, men and women can be seen through hidden cameras placed inside smoke detectors in the home. The cameras were in bedrooms and restrooms in the rental home.

According to court documents, the cameras were discovered in January by a group staying in the home. In all, six smoke detectors were found to contain spy cameras linked to a DVR.

Las Vegas police put out a news release asking anyone who stayed in the home, at 7494 Forestdale Court in southeast Las Vegas between October of last year and January, and believes they may be a victim to contact detectives at (702) 828-1682.
