Taylorsville Man Charged With Installing Camera In Elementary School Staff Restroom

32-year-old Michael Justin Childers of Taylorsville was arrested Tuesday (December 1) by Alexander County Sheriff’s Officers. He’s charged with felony peeping.

On Tuesday, investigators with the Alexander County Sheriff’s Office responded to Wittenburg Elementary School in reference to a video camera that had been located in a staff restroom. The camera had been hidden under a sink inside the staff restroom, and was later located on the floor of the restroom by a staff member. The school campus was searched, and there is no indication that this camera was placed in any student restroom.

Childers was employed as a custodian by Alexander County Schools. He was issued a $10,000 secured bond and is scheduled to appear in District Court next Monday (December 7).
