The case involving a New Hampshire man accused of placing cameras inside two Sanibel beach restrooms continues to make its way through the court system.

Circuit Judge Bruce Kyle scheduled Dana Alan Caruso, of Hampson, New Hampshire, for his next hearings early next year.

Caruso, 58, is charged with eight counts of voyeurism and video voyeurism, five of them involving children younger than 16. He pleaded not guilty Sept. 7.

Police at Chicago's O'Hare Airport arrested Caruso on Aug. 19 after a judge issued an arrest warrant.

Sanibel police continue to work to identify victims involved in their video voyeurism investigation.

By Sept. 16, Sanibel police were nearly halfway through cracking the case.

A week shy of Hurricane Ian's landfall on the island they had identified 22 victims out of the total 55. They say the people visited July 28.

After installing the device on July 13, a beach surveillance camera captured a man identified as Caruso outside the restroom watching people enter and exit the restrooms on nine non-consecutive days.

Police reported that they retrieved 277 videos - 190 taken in the south family restroom and 87 from the north family restroom.

Hidden in the homemade fire alarm boxes, the key fob-size cameras recorded five-minute clips stored on micro SD memory cards that could transfer to electronic devices such as a phone or laptop.

Many of those on video had their private areas exposed to the camera, which was recorded. The descriptions in the arrest report include single men, children, teen boys, women, and mothers with their children.

Some used the facilities, and some changed into or out of swimsuits.

He was booked into Lee County Jail on Sept. 5 and was released the following day on a $140,000 bond.

Caruso hired private attorney Zachary Cantor, a criminal defense attorney who founded Cantor and Cantor in Fort Myers.

Court records indicate the next court action in the case is a Jan. 31 case management conference followed by a remote deposition Feb. 28.
