Santa Barbara County Man Accused Of Recording Woman In Restrooms

Posted on Wednesday, October 2, 2013 1:10pm

A Santa Barbara county man is accused of elder abuse, and with making unauthorized recordings after a cell phone was found concealed in the restroom of a Santa Ynez Valley assisted living home.

An employee found the device in the ventilation system of a bathroom.  The home’s administrator called Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department, with an investigation leading them to Juan Carlos Diaz.  The 35 year old man worked as a custodian at the facility.

Investigators say a search of his home turned up a number of videos taken over a several month long period in two bathrooms at the facility.  It’s still unclear how many women may have been victimized by the videos.
