Vermont Massage Therapist Charged With 4 Counts of Voyeurism

Vermont police say the owner of a Middlebury massage therapy business recorded customers with hidden cameras.

Police have charged 53-year-old Roger Schmidt with four counts of voyeurism.

Police began investigating Schmidt after a Rogers Relaxing Massage Therapy customer filed a complaint. Investigators say they discovered multiple hidden cameras along with 70 videos and image files at Schmidt's business and his Middlebury home.

Police believe the videos and pictures were taken without consent. Four victims have been identified. Police believe there are other victims.

It could not be determined if Schmidt is being represented by an attorney.

The Middlebury Police Department is asking for anyone who received a massage or other services from Roger Schmidt during 2017 or 2018 to contact Detective Kris Bowdish.
