Christopher Allen Reeves, the school’s media specialist, was arrested by the Guilford County Sheriff’s Office Wednesday on two felony counts of Peeping Using a Photographic Imaging Device and two felony counts of Possessing a Photographic Image Obtained in Violation of the Peeping Statute. Reeves, 47, received a $10,000 bond.

On April 30, detectives began an investigation after a school employee reported suspicious images on an electronic storage device at the school. The sheriff’s office says images were taken from a camera in a changing room between January 2013 and December 2015. Guilford County Schools says Reeves resigned May 1 when he learned of the investigation.
