PARK CITY — Police say a Kamas man installed hidden cameras in a woman’s house and recorded her.

Matthew Ingoldsby, 48, was charged Friday in Summit County’s 3rd District Court with two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and burglary, both second-degree felonies; tampering with a witness and voyeurism, both third-degree felonies; and voyeurism, a class A misdemeanor.

According to charging documents, Ingoldsby entered a woman’s home “and installed hidden cameras. One camera was in a heat vent pointed at (the woman’s) bed, one camera was in a heat vent pointed at the shower and one was hidden above the bathroom sink.”

Police seized the cameras and served a warrant to review the equipment.

“At the time of this filing, 57 videos and 57 pictures have been found saved on Ingoldsby’s electronic equipment,” the charges state.

A young girl was also recorded, according to the charges.

“During the course of the investigation Ingoldsby asked me if the victim did not press charges would it not go through, and I instructed him that if he in any way tried to get her to not follow through with charges then he would be witness tampering and would receive additional charges. Four days in to the investigation, Ingoldsby contacted the victim via text and begged her not to press charges,” according to a police affidavit.
