Landlord peeped on 34 female tenants
A Norristown landlord secretly videotaped 34 female tenants over two decades after hiding cameras in their apartments, authorities contended yesterday.
Daley had installed the cameras – typically one in the bedroom and one in the bathroom – in at least seven apartments he rented to women in Norristown over the last 19 years, Reynolds said.
Daley’s sophisticated setup fed the camera images to a recording system in the basement, and enabled him to view the tapes from his home via the Internet, authorities have said.
He hid the tiny cameras behind mirrors and in cabinets and ceiling fans, and some turned on with the flip of a light switch, they said.
Defense attorney Timothy Woodward did not immediately return a call seeking comment from the Associated Press.
The investigation began after a tenant discovered a camera this year and contacted police, leading to Daley’s arrest Sept. 19 on charges including wiretapping and invasion of privacy. Detectives have since searched his other rental properties and recovered videotapes, records and evidence that led to new charges involving 34 current and former tenants, authorities said.
Daley has been in prison on $1 million cash bail since his arrest. *
