MINNEAPOLIS -- A Minneapolis man is accused of using a camera to capture nude images women who were renting rooms in his home.
A criminal complaint filed in Hennepin County District Court on Thursday details the accusations against Curtis Dean Tolzman, who was charged with two counts of interference with privacy, one for peeping in a public area and another for using an observation device in a dwelling.
Investigators matinatin that In July of 2010 an adult female rented a room from Tolzman in a home located in the 4200 block of 12th Ave. S. in Minneapolis. Tolzman lived at the house with two adult females.
Just over a month and a half ago Tolzman installed a new floor vent in a bathroom in the house, which one of the females told investigators she found odd.
One of the women eventually noticed a small red light under the vent, and on March 1, lifted the vent after Tolzman left the house for the day for work. She found a camera under a piece of plastic in the vent as well as wiring for the camera that ran down the heating vent.
The female followed the wiring, which took her to Tolzman's bedroom. She then called police.
Authorities discovered that Tolzman had recording equipment and a TV in his bedroom. They also found video footage of the two women in their bathrooms, and it shows the women naked and stepping out of the shower. Police also found pornographic videos and sexual devices in Tolzman's room.
Tolzman arrived home while police were searching the home and was immediately arrested. The complaint says he admitted to police that he watched the women while pleasuring himself.
