Video recorders found in Davenport elementary school bathroom

Three video recorders were found in the girls’ restroom of a Davenport elementary school.

The recording devices were found “covertly placed” in two stalls at Hayes Elementary School on Concord Street Wednesday, April 2, 2014, according to Assistant Chief of Davenport Police Donald Schaeffer.

“It appears they were only there for a short period of time before being found by staff,” Schaeffer said.

The school planned to notify all the students’ families by email and phone message. They also planned to send a letter home with each child.

Schaeffer said there were a “minimal number of victims.” School staff members were working with detectives to identify victims and figure out who was responsible for placing the recorders in the stalls.

Police said that every school facility within the Davenport School District was searched early on Thursday morning and no other cameras were found.
