A Toronto man charged with four counts of voyeurism earlier this year now faces 38 additional charges, including making child pornography, after a police investigation uncovered 14 new victims.

Ian Campbell, now 63, was arrested and charged in July after two people he had invited to stay at his home in the city’s downtown core reported a number of hidden cameras throughout the apartment to police.

Police later executed a search warrant at the address and charged Campbell with four counts of voyeurism, alleging that he took photographs and video of his guests without their knowledge, including in the bathroom and bedroom.

Campbell made his first court appearance on July 15.

On Monday, Campbell surrendered to police, who continued their investigation and identified 14 new victims, and was charged with:

- 17 counts of voyeurism – reasonable expectation of privacy.

- 12 counts of voyeurism – sexually explicit activity.

- 2 counts of voyeurism – for a sexual purpose.

- 5 counts of make child pornography.

- 2 counts of unlawfully possess child pornography.

At the time of his initial arrest, Campbell was an employee of the CBC. Chuck Thompson, head of media relations at CBC English Services, said in an email Tuesday morning that Campbell is no longer with the CBC. He did not clarify when exactly that relationship was terminated.

Police believe there may be more victims. Anyone who has stayed at Campbell’s home is asked to call TPS 51 Division Youth and Family Services.
