Police in Fulton County have arrested a school resource officer accused of videotaping people in his home without their consent.
According to Cpl. Kay Lester of the Fulton County Police Department, Keith Rucker, a Tri Cities High School resource officer, was arrested on eavesdropping charges on June 20.
Fulton County police say cameras, computers and thumb drives were recovered from Rucker’s home on Marcliff Court.
According to Lester, Rucker set up a Facebook page where he posed as a female to solicit photos of nude boys. There could be dozens of victims dating back to 2008, according to Lester.
Fulton County police say cameras, computers and thumb drives were recovered from Rucker’s home on Marcliff Court. According to investigators, the evidence shows that unknown individuals may have been recorded in “private places in the home without their consent.”
Officers are working with the Secret Service to open the files; some of them are said to be heavily encoded.
Fulton County Schools spokesperson Samantha Evans says Rucker was fired from the district Tuesday. Evans says they have no reason to believe any of the victims were students at Tri-Cities High School.
Rucker is also the executive director of the Quick Silver Track Club in Fulton County, according to police. Parents told 11Alive that they had received emails from another coach saying that Rucker had been arrested and suspended from the club. Track club practices on Wednesday and Thursday were cancelled.
Authorities have not identified the victims. Additional charges will likely be filed once the victims are identified, Lester said. Anyone who may have information on victims’ identities is asked to call the Fulton County Police Department at 404-613-6600.
