Authorities aren’t sure how long the accused student may have been spying.
“It’s disturbing. We definitely feel for the girls that had to deal with this,” said Paulding County Sgt. Ashley Henson.
Investigators said it’s unclear how many girls were spied on.
“I was in the same hall where it happened. I was in the same bathroom, but I don’t know if it happened before, or after,” student Bethany Furman said.
The boy has been detained at a youth detention facility and faces two peeping Tom charges.
Investigators are looking into whether the student took any pictures while in the ceiling. If so, he could face a longer list of charges.
“I wouldn’t want to have a daughter up here and somebody’s peeping down on her or whatever. That’s crazy,” parent Marcus Grissom said.
The school sent a note home to parents informing them of the incident.
School officials would not say what disciplinary actions the student could face.
