A California teacher is now in police custody after placing a hidden recording device in a school bathroom, NBC Los Angeles reported.
While inside of an all-gender bathroom next to the school’s swimming pool, a maintenance worker employed at Beckman High School found multiple recording devices. Shortly after the discovery was made, investigators from the Irvine Police Department were able to name a suspect.
On Monday, Siu Kong Sit was arrested and charged with possession of child pornography, burglary, and two misdemeanor. He remains in Orange County Jail with a $20,000 bail.
“Officers determined the devices had recorded several victims while in the restroom,” the department said, adding that the department is working to locate additional victims.
A letter sent out to parents by Superintendent Mark E Johnson stated that counseling would be provided to Sit’s victims. The statement also assured parents that a private firm had been contracted to do a further sweep for additional devices.
