Home Security Installer Accused of Hiding Cameras to Manufacture Child Porn

Ryan Coventon - Saturday, November 24, 2018

An Oklahoma City home security installer has been accused of secretly hiding cameras in the homes of customers and using those cameras to fuel his video voyeurism.

Ryan Aaron Alden, 39, of The Village, was a workman with a home security company. He reportedly admitted to making up excuses to contact two homeowners after installing their security systems, saying he needed to do extra work at the homes. An affidavit says Alden said the trusting homeowners made it easy for him to hide the cameras in their homes, and that is why he "preyed" on them. An officer stated in the affidavit, "Alden advised that the residents would normally just tell him to come over and would provide him with the garage code."

Alden is accused of returning to two metro homes--one in Nichols Hills and one in Oklahoma City--and placing the covert cameras. The cameras were then hooked up to WiFi that Alden allegedly controlled to spy on young girls in the homes.

After a homeowner discovered the cameras, Alden's employer began a search of the homes in which he had worked for the company. During this search, they found hidden cameras in another home as well. Police serving a warrant at Alden's home seized multiple cellphones, computer towers and laptops from his house. Investigators say that one device contained more than 2,000 images of child pornography, and they claim to have also found video taken from the hidden webcams. 

Alden reportedly confessed to hiding the cameras, an idea he claims to have gotten from watching pornography. He allegedly also took numerous clandestine photos of girls in public places including "gyms, schools, stores, mall changing rooms and a high school football game." Investigators say he told them that any time he was in public, he was looking for a way to take clandestine photos and get his "fix."

Alden has been charged with more than 20 felonies, including manufacturing child pornography, aggravated possession of child pornography, and using video equipment in a clandestine manner.  Additionally, the mother of one of the victims has filed a lawsuit against him. He is held in the Oklahoma County Jail on $251,000 bond.
