A second victim unrelated to the child used a stall several minutes later and also reported noticing his image on a phone, detectives said.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said investigators seized Fuentes’ phone and recovered 160 images taken in bathroom stalls between December 2021 and February 2022.

Detectives noted Fuentes’ accessed his phone’s camera and photo gallery around the time the two alleged victims claimed they were spied on.
