The Gaffney (S.C.) Police Department is investigating a report that five videos of women’s athletic teams in a locker room at Limestone College were discovered on an adult entertainment website, based on a report filed with police Oct. 10 by the Campus Safety Department.
As reported by CBS affiliate WSPA, the campus safety officials indicate in the report that there had been five different surveillance videos of five different visiting women’s teams recorded while changing clothes and showering inside a men's locker room between September 2012 to October 2013.
Police were told the videos were uploaded to a porn website about two months ago, and that the security division at the college was unsure who was responsible for the videos. According to the report, campus safety said it appeared that the video recording device was sitting on a sink in the men’s locker room while recording the women.
The impact could reach far beyond the Limestone campus. “There are a lot of moving parts to this with other universities,” Gaffney Police Department Detective Brian Blanto said, as reported by WSPA. “Out-of-state universities.
