It seem that spying on people using hidden recording devices is on the rise. In the most recent case, a Maryland man spies on 2 women using a hidden camera in their condo.
Michael McKenny, 42, has been arrested for spying on the two women at their condominium.
ABC News reports that McKinney knew the identities of the roommates and had stolen and copied their key to their condo in Ellicott City outside Baltimore.
The women discovered the video camera hidden in a closet last month.

Police were looking for McKenny and received tips from the public which led to his arrest.
McKenny apparently felt very comfortable going in and out of the condo since he reportedly went back into the condo several times to move the camera around since it was first set up in June.
He even photographed himself inadvertently while checking the camera and was also observed wiping away his fingerprints.
The exact relationship between Michael McKenny and the women has not been revealed, however it is clear that the roommates and McKenny knew each other.
WHTM reports that McKenny has been charged with burglary, visual surveillance with prurient intent and other offenses and is being held on $100,000 bond.
Only days ago, a lawsuit was filed by a family of 9 that was vacationing in the exclusive Hamptons. They discovered a camera, searched the house and discovered, to their horror that many camera were secretly placed in the vacation rental, recording their activities in the bedrooms and showers.
They confronted the owner of the property, Donald Torr and he said it was for security purposes.
That family is suing for nearly 5 million.
It seems that people have to be extra cautious about who they allow their homes and must now guard their house keys zealously.
In addition, it now seems prudent, in this day and age, to thoroughly check vacation homes and hotel rooms to see if there are any hidden recording devices.
