FRANKLIN, Tenn. (WKRN) — An employee of a Franklin cheerleading studio is no longer with the facility after police said a camera was found inside of a girls restroom and changing area.

The discovery was made at Premier Athletics, a cheer and gymnastics studio on Gothic Court near Cool Springs.

Franklin police said the general manager of the studio turned in a GoPro camera to law enforcement after finding it hidden in a girls restroom and changing area last Thursday. The department said Tuesday that detectives were reviewing video from the GoPro to identify victims and contact their parents.

The camera was linked to an employee of the business and charges are “forthcoming,” police said.

While police have not provided the name of the employee involved, Premier Athletics released a statement to parents that the employee no longer works at the cheer company after “a camera was found in the women’s restroom.”

The company advised it does “regular sweeps of the restrooms” and will work with the Williamson County K-9 unit to have “random checks for suspicious electronics.”

No additional information was immediately released.
