Passenger arrested for filming people with hidden camera
A passenger of the 'Harmony of the Seas' was arrested last week for allegedly filming people, including children, on board with a hidden camera. Jeremy Froias boarded the ship in Miami on April 29, 2023, for a week-long sailing with stops in San Juan, Puerto Rico, the Bahamas and more. The following day he installed a Wi-Fi camera in a public bathroom on the vessel’s top deck, according to an arrest affidavit. The camera was hidden in a part of the wall that had been removed for repairs, where another guest spotted it on May 1 and notified the ship’s crew, according to the affidavit signed by FBI special agent John Auchter. The vessel’s security personnel searched for and seized the device, finding video footage featuring over 150 people, at least 40 of whom appeared to be minors. The footage showed them changing clothes and using the bathroom. Froias could also be seen installing the camera and adjusting its angle to focus on the toilet. He admitted to placing the camera in the bathroom in an interview with ship security. The FBI has asked potential victims and those with relevant knowledge to fill out a form on its website. Royal Caribbean immediately reported the matter to local and federal law enforcement and the guest involved was removed from the ship by authorities for further investigation. Froias appeared in court on May 8 in Puerto Rico, where a judge said he could be released on $25,000 bond. He must surrender his passport, not have access to the internet and not have unsupervised contact with any minors, including his two children, among other stipulations.
