Deputies investigate 'unlawful filming' inside high school locker room

Deputies say the student who allegedly filmed the video deleted it before law enforcement became involved.

LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. — Deputies are investigating a complaint of "unlawful filming" in a Stone Bridge High School locker room in Loudoun County, Virginia.

According to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office (LCSO), the investigation began after hearing a report of cell phone footage filmed in a boy's locker room which allegedly shows four students in their underwear. Three of the boys are minors while the fourth student is an adult. 

The incident reportedly happened on Friday, Feb. 3. 

In a letter to parents, Principal Tim Flynn said the incident was immediately reported to the sheriff's office. Deputies say the student who allegedly filmed the video deleted it before law enforcement became involved. Officials have not said what they believe the student recorded the footage.  

Deputies are not releasing any identifying information as the investigation involved juvenile victims as well as a juvenile suspect. 

"I want to remind parents to speak with their students about the proper use of cell phones and to refrain from using them in private spaces, making inappropriate recordings or joking about doing so," Flynn writes. "Our students are entitled to privacy in bathrooms and locker rooms, and we expect all of our students to respect the privacy of their peers."

LCSO officials say they are working with school administrators to determine an appropriate course of action.
