ESCONDIDO (CNS) - A North County attorney was arrested Friday for allegedly filming at least one teenage girl and six women in tanning salons without their knowledge, police said.

David Taylor Kaye of San Marcos was arrested shortly after 8 a.m. on suspicion of 15 felony counts of possession of child pornography and one felony count of possession of a loaded, concealed and unregistered firearm, according to Escondido police Lt. Craig Carter.

The 43-year-old attorney also was arrested on suspicion of four misdemeanor counts of secretly filming a person, four misdemeanor counts of peeking through a private area and one count of destruction of evidence, Carter said.

Kaye has been the subject of a 10-month investigation that started when he was allegedly seen secretly filming women in various stages of undress as they were tanning at a local tanning salon. He was initially arrested last April 19 and charged with four misdemeanor counts of secretly filming a person, according to Carter.

On July 22, Escondido police served a search warrant on Kaye's house and business and recovered additional evidence, Carter said.

Since then, police have been working closely with the District Attorney's office and a court-appointed Special Master for the investigation due to Kaye's occupation, Carter said.

More evidence allegedly found on Kaye's computers and phones led to his arrest and the additional charges Friday, according to the lieutenant.

Seven alleged victims have been identified, including a 15-year-old girl, but police believe there may be more. Carter encouraged anyone with information about the case to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
