Man accused of hiding cameras in second metro home
OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) —
A man is accused of installing hidden cameras inside the bedroom of a juvenile at a second home in the Oklahoma City metro.
On Oct. 18, Nichols Hills police were made aware of three cameras that were found hidden in the air ducts of a home. One of the cameras was pointed at a young girl's bedroom. Investigators later learned that the homeowner recently had various projects performed at the home and that an employee from Sound Advice, Ryan Alden, had access to the areas where the cameras were found.
Alden was interviewed by police on Oct. 24 and allegedly admitted to placing the cameras in the home.
After Sound Advice learned of the allegations, they began checking other homes that Alden had worked in. At a home near NW 23 and Meridian, employees discovered two cameras hidden inside a home. The cameras were found hidden in air vents pointed at a child's bedroom and a bathroom.
The occupant of the home told police she hired Sound Advice to install an alarm system. Alden had been to the house on multiple different occasions to set up the system.
While being interviewed by Nichols Hills police, Alden reportedly admitted to taking photos and videos of females in mall changing rooms and tanning beds. Police took possession of several phones, tablets and computers belonging to Alden. The man allegedly admitted to having a "massive" amount of photos and videos on his devices.
Alden has been booked into the Oklahoma County Jail. He now faces two complaints of peeping tom, one complaint of manufacturing child pornography, one count of possession of child pornography and four counts of unlawful use of a computer.
