Female Students In Miami Allege They Found Cameras In Their Apartment

A Miami Beach man has been arrested after authorities claim he hid cameras in three foreign students rooms in the apartment they were renting from him.

The 45-year-old man was arrested Tuesday on a video voyeurism charge.

According to reports, the three females had moved into the apartment Monday after answering a Craigslist ad to rent a room from the man.

The next day, the women claim they found three portable clocks in the bathroom and discovered hidden cameras with a video card inside the clocks.

The man denied installing the cameras.
