GLEN BURNIE, Md. - Anne Arundel County Police say an officer has been put on administrative leave after he allegedly installed a video camera in a men's restroom at a high school.

Police say a student at Glen Burnie High School saw the camera in a top corner on Wednesday and told school officials. Police and school officials searched all the restrooms and locker rooms at the school, but found no other cameras.

Authorities say that an investigation shows that a police officer installed the camera, without knowledge of the police department or school system. No images were found on the camera.

Police say the officer, a 14-year veteran assigned to the Special Services Bureau, has had his police powers suspended.

The investigation into the incident is continuing.
