A North Carolina man arrested in February was accused of filming male students using the restroom with hidden cameras, according to the search warrants released Tuesday.
The Buncombe County Sheriff's Office released the search warrants issued on Feb. 1 when deputies investigated Charles D. Owen Middle School teacher Kevin Calloway, 41, after he was accused of peeping on minors.
Deputies said Calloway, of Swannanoa, filmed several male students undressing, using the bathroom and seized electronic items in connection with their investigation.
While reviewing the seized items, investigators said the footage came from cameras placed in the ceiling and toilets in the bathroom.
Calloway was charged with indecent liberties with a child and secret peeping.
School district superintendent Dr. Tony Baldwin said the school's principal, Vicky Matthews, was on leave during internal investigations. He said there seems to have been a lapse in reporting the situation.
Baldwin said reports to the school were made in late December, but the sheriff's department heard complaints from parents at the end of January.
On Feb. 2, Baldwin said the school system has suspended Calloway, with plans to dismiss him. He said they'd rather be safe than sorry.
Deputies said the case had been transferred to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
According to the Asheville Citizen-Times, Calloway was charged with production of child pornography by the U.S. Attorney's Office. He appeared before a judge on the federal charge Monday and was denied bond.
