Man accused over tanning salon videos


A Mashpee man was arrested Sunday for allegedly filming women from various angles as they tanned in a salon on Cape Cod, police said. Luis Macedo, 47, an employee at Sunsational Tanning in Hyannis, was arrested after a woman told Barnstable police that she had noticed a camera lens beneath her feet while she was tanning in a booth at the salon. Police set up surveillance at the salon, which they said allowed them to identify Macedo as he positioned his cellphone in a changing room, where officers also found a peephole concealed by an advertisement. When police approached Macedo, he admitted to secretly taking videos of women with his cellphone through the perforated floors of the booths and from the peephole in the changing room. Police said they recovered more than 20 videos from Macedo’s cellphone. He was charged with two counts of secretly videorecording or photgraphing nudity. Police said concerned clients of the salon can contact them at 508-775-0387.
