Alleged porn bust: Hidden cameras in tanning salon

(CBS/KFVS) DJ's Tan and Tone in Malden, Mo., has been closed under allegations that the owner, Joseph Layland Jr., used a hidden camera to tape customers - some of them underage - as they tanned.

KFVS reports that authorities are investigating hundreds of pieces of evidence, including more than 500 DVDs and videos, 18-to-20 hours of surveillance tape and two computer hard drives, in what could be the state's largest porn bust.

"Disbelief, betrayal," said customer Krista Cullum, who believes naked images of her may exist on the video seized from Layland's home - a man she thought was a friend.

Layland often contacted Cullum and other customers on Facebook to bring in business - yet rarely charged a fee.

The investigation was launched, after a customer noticed a quarter-inch hole in the wall of one of the tanning booths and alerted police.

KFVS reports that they tried to speak with Layland's co-owner, his mother, but she declined to make a comment.

Layland is being held on $500,000 bail.
