“The cameras were certainly positioned in such a fashion that not only was the level of trust violated, but so too was their level of privacy,” said Adam Feiner with the Pembroke Pines Police Department.
“The content has a wide variety of victims being exposed at a time when they were at their most sensitive. The victims were unclothed, they were unassuming and they were behind closed doors in a restroom, either using the bathroom or perhaps changing their clothes,” added Feiner.
A 17-year-old victim whose name is not being released discovered the cameras confronted Franco, called her dad, and then called police.
“When this young female first confronted Master Franco, he destroyed some of the physical evidence. That physical evidence is described as CCTV camera footage and general surveillance footage that the business had in place, that damaged equipment is now in the possession of the Pembroke Pines Police Department for additional forensic extracting.”
Officials say those secretly recorded range from children to adults.
“Anyone who may have been to that business whether you are a participant or whether you were a visitor, whether your a child or an adult, if you just used their dressing room or used the restroom, the Pembroke Pines Police Department wants you to come forward.MORE NEWS: Report: Miami-Dade School District Misused $6M For Driver’s Ed Programs
