Investigators said Munger allegedly told a tenant she had planted cameras in a condo she runs, and had videotaped the tenant having sex, the Northwest Florida Daily News reported Monday.

The tenant, who was not identified, had moved out and Munger was trying to collect overdue payments, police said.

Investigators said Munger threatened to sell the video and publish the tenant's Social Security number if payment was not made, the newspaper reported.

However, the victim went to police and Munger was arrested after an undercover sting. Officers saw the landlady hand over a videotape in exchange for what she thought was the money she was owed, police said.
