Police used fake bomb threat to install cameras in Robert Kraft sex spa case

• by A.J. Perez

Kraft's attorneys wrote in an expanded motion to suppress the video footage that Jupiter Police Department (JPD) officers "caused a phony 'suspicious package' warning to be issued for the Spa in order to force an evacuation so the JPD could install hidden cameras inside several of its private massage rooms, as well as in the Spa's lobby."

The newest motion again alleges police used "allusions to human trafficking" to secure the warrant. 

"This ruse concealed the execution of the Warrant from the Spa, its employees, and its customers, none of whom received notice of the issuance of the Warrant or the placement of hidden video cameras on Spa premises," Jack Goldberger, Kraft's Florida-based attorney, wrote. 

Kraft was one of 24 men charged with soliciting prostitution over alleged visits to the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter. Kraft allegedly visited the spa on consecutive days, the second time before the Patriots faced the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC title game Jan. 20.
