A southern New Jersey high school custodian was arrested Wednesday and accused of using eight small cameras hidden around the school to secretly film students and teachers, including in places where students change clothes.

Authorities said John Martin of Wenonah, N.J., had hours of footage from the cameras and kept a large cache of screenshots on his cellphone. They said some of the images showed nudity.

Martin, 41, resigned last week as chief custodian at Gloucester Catholic High School in Gloucester City, near Philadelphia, after he was first interviewed by authorities.

The Camden County prosecutor’s office said he’d worked there for 18 years and was in charge of the school’s video surveillance system.


Martin turned himself in on Wednesday and was released on on the condition that he not go near the school or any of its students or staff members.
