GLEN BURNIE, Md. (AP) -- Police in Anne Arundel County say they're looking into why a police officer installed a camera in a boys' bathroom at Glen Burnie High School and that the officer has been suspended without pay.

A student noticed the camera Wednesday and alerted school officials. Officials then searched all of the other bathrooms and locker rooms but found no other devices. Anne Arundel County police Lt. T.J.Smith says an investigation revealed the officer put the camera in the bathroom. Investigators said that no images or recordings have been found on the device.

The name of the officer, a 14-year-veteran, was not released. No criminal charges have been filed.
