The camera was found in the bathroom on March 20 by an unidentified student. It was then given to police, who later said it was installed by 14-year police veteran assigned to the Special Services Bureau, reports the Baltimore Sun.

Police claimed that the camera was not working and had been placed in plain view in the bathroom ceiling.
