Cops: Unlawful Surveillance at Countrywood School

Kevin Clancy of Glen Head arrested Wednesday.

A Long Island IT technician has been accused of taking iPhone video recordings in a faculty bathroom at Countrywood Primary Center in South Huntington, according to police.

Police say Kevin Clancy, 31, of 10-A Glenn Ave. in Glen Head was charged with second degree unlawful surveilance, a felony.

"Following a lengthy investigation, Second Squad detectives arrested him on April 25," said a police spokesperson. "He was released on bail and is scheduled for arraignment on a later date."

Steve Bartholomew, spokesman for the South Huntington school district said the device was discovered in a unisex bathroom at the school April 19 by school officials.

"Police were called immediately and the phone was turned over," said Bartholomew to Patch.

The school district was informed by police that the video contained footage of unidentified adults using the bathroom, according to a statement posted on the school district website from school district Superintendent Thomas Shea.

"Presently, the police have indicated that this incident does not involve any children," said the letter. 

Bartholomew said Clancy was contracted and was not a school district employee. Clancy has been removed from his assigment, according to the school district.

Restrooms in all South Huntington schools have been searched, according to the school district. No other recording devices have been found.

LOL Micah. You owned Jim C! BTW, there WAS a background check on this guy, he passed with flying colors. He was supposedly a real nice guy who was liked by all. I guess those are the ones that fool us. It's not too hard to spot the guy with the raincoat and the FREE CANDY van. The quiet pleasant guys - those guys are the dangerous ones.
