PEORIA, AZ — A Valley massage therapist is behind bars, accused of multiple sex-related crimes involving his clients and young children.
Authorities say the investigation into 52-year-old Robert Miller started last week after a customer noticed a hidden video camera plugged into an outlet of his massage room.
Police say during a search of his home, officers found hundreds of images of child pornography, sex toys that resemble children and videos of his customers during their massages.
