A male student at Glennallen High School is accused of "attempted indecent photography" after allegedly slipping a video recording device into the girl's locker room, according to the Alaska State Troopers.

Another student discovered the recorder before "indecent" video was recorded, troopers said in an online dispatch posted Sunday.

Troopers started their investigation on Jan. 28, after being notified of the incident.

"Investigation revealed that a male student hid an iPod in the girl's locked room, activated the video recording mode and aimed the video at the changing area," the dispatch said. "The iPod was noticed by a female student who notified school staff."

Troopers interviewed the male student, who was disciplined by the school.

His name has not been released because he's a juvenile, said AST spokeswoman Beth Ipsen.

Glennallen is a community of about 500 people located 189 miles east of Anchorage, at the junction of the Glenn and Richardson highways west of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve.

The boy's case has been forwarded to the juvenile probation department, she said.
