Mashpee man charged with filming women at Cape Cod tanning salon

A Mashpee man was arrested Sunday for allegedly filming women from various angles as they tanned in a salon on Cape Cod, police said.

Luis Macedo, 47, an employee at Sunsational Tanning in Hyannis, was arrested after a woman told Barnstable police that she had noticed a camera lens beneath her feet while she was tanning in a booth at the salon.

Police set up surveillance at the salon, which they said allowed them to identify Macedo as he positioned his cell phone in a changing room, where officers also found a peephole concealed by an advertisement.
