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.

    So, it was either done by a student (doubt it) or faculty member…unless a female parent was allowed to use the restroom.

    I can understand wanting to see the body parts, but wanting to see human waste? That’s a different level of sick.

      You can “understand” wanting to see body parts? Body parts of little girls grades k-5? I’d rather look at someone’s shit than look at children like that. Maybe you didn’t mean it the way it sounds, but if I were you, I’d rephrase that comment.
