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.

Hendon visited single-family homes in the 4400 block of Venice Drive to record the tutorial videos. When a deputy approached him, he jumped over a fence into a private property, the Sheriff's Office said.

Hendon also had an outstanding warrant for trespassing, the report said.
