LAND O' LAKES — Deputies said they arrested a teenager who was making a YouTube video to show people how they can cover up home security cameras.

Joshua Hendon, 18, of Land O' Lakes, was arrested Thursday afternoon and faces charges of trespassing and loitering, according to an arrest report from the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office.
