In August 2022, Kayelee Gates and her fiancé Christian Capraro found hidden cameras at an Airbnb they were staying at in Silver Spring. On July 13 the couple filed a lawsuit for more than $75,000 against the owner of the home, Christopher Goisse, for allegedly planting the cameras.

According to court documents, the couple found two cameras in their room and another in the bathroom. When officers responded to the home, located on Dale Drive, they reportedly found a video recording device disguised as a smoke detector in the basement where another guest was staying.

Fox5 reported that Goisse has denied any wrongdoing and said the guests may have planted the cameras. The Montgomery County police are not commenting on the case due to the pending litigation. [Fox5]
