IRVINE, Calif. (TCD) -- A 37-year-old high school teacher was arrested this week after a maintenance worker reportedly found hidden recording devices inside a restroom.
Irvine Police said the contracted maintenance worker at Beckman High School discovered the devices in "the all-gender restroom located near the pool."
