Video allegedly shows landlord having sex in tenants’ bed, using wife’s wedding dress to clean up
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado — A landlord in Colorado Springs is in trouble with the law after allegedly having sex in a couple’s bed, according to KKTV.
Officials with Colorado Springs Police Department say that the people who live in the apartment have video proof.
Logan Pierce is a tenant of landlord Carlos Quijada and he was startled to get an alert on his phone that there was unusual activity in his home.
“I got a notification from one of the cameras on lunch the other day that it detected noise and it was strange because both of us work all day every day,” Pierce said.
One of those cameras is set up in the bedroom of his apartment at Skyway Condominiums.
“I opened up the camera and kind of had to like, quit the program and like, restart it again because I didn’t really believe what I saw,” Pierce said.
After reopening it, he said he found a clear picture of his landlord having sex on his and his wife’s bed.
“I guess the first thing that went through my mind was like complete and utter disbelief,” Pierce said.
Pierce immediately called his wife, telling her they needed to move. His next call was to police.
“Landlords don’t have the ability to go into tenant apartments and do whatever they want to do,” said Lt. Howard Black with the Colorado Springs Police Department.
Quijada declined to comment on the incident.
Pierce’s lease, like many do, states that the landlord has the right to enter the apartment, but Springs police say this case is felony trespassing.
Pierce says the worst part of it all is what the two used as a towel to clean up — his wife’s wedding dress.
“To see how upset she immediately got because she was the one that realized that’s what that was and they just threw it back and now that’s gone because the authorities took it for DNA evidence,” Pierce said.
An arrest warrant has been issued for felony trespass and misdemeanor obscenity.
