Landlord Jailed for Filming Tenants

A landlord in Edinburgh has been jailed for using hidden cameras to film tenants.

Jonathan Hartwell, 39, recorded his tenants on the toilet, in the shower and asleep in bed at his rental flat between May and August 2014.

He was caught out when he allowed a couple to use the flat and they discovered a box featuring an inbuilt camera.

The police found more secret cameras in the bathroom and bedroom, Edinburgh Sheriff Court heard.

Hartwell was jailed for 12 months and put on the sex offenders register.
