It is quiet outside home listed in police documents as the residence of Howard Harjo. And neighbors declined to comment about the man police say confessed to placing cameras in girls bathrooms at the Sapulpa Public School Indoor Softball Training Facility. It's a shocking crime, especially to former Sapulpa High School students.
"In a locker room you can't be much more careful in a locker room, that's where you're supposed to change and get ready and yeah" says Cassandra Hughes a former Sapulpa Graduate.
Police say it was a school employee who found the camera concealed inside a trash can. A police affidavit also states the camera was clandestinely situation to record the unknowing juvenile females while they used the restroom facility. But why?
"He did not elaborate as far as why, he was video taping and stuff, he did admit to doing it" says Lt. Glenn Coffey.
For police, it's the painstaking task of going through the video and trying to identify the students involved.
"We've got yearbooks, we've got rosters, a lot of kids I know cause I've been at the school for the past 11 years so I should know some of them based upon their facial recognition."
Police have asked to the OSBI to help in the case so that everything is well documented. But for people in this community, this is not what they expected from a figure who is supposed to be trusted.
"It's like everything is falling apart these days, what preachers and all these other coaches and teachers and it's unbelievable."
