Chevy Chase Landlord Pleads Guilty to Spying on Tenants

ROCKVILLE, Md. — A Montgomery County landlord has pleaded guilty to using a hidden surveillance camera to spy on female tenants engaged in sexual acts.

Dennis Van Dusen, of Chevy Chase, faces up to 18 months in prison after pleading guilty in Circuit Court on Tuesday.

Sentencing was scheduled for July 2. Van Dusen admitted to three counts of using a camera in a private home with a prurient intent.

A tenant reported the 54-year-old Van Dusen to police last fall, saying she had found a hidden surveillance camera inside a smoke detector in a room that she was renting.

Police say they later confiscated Van Dusen’s laptop and found nude or sexual videos of current and past female renters who lived in his home.
