BELLEVILLE (AP) — Police in southwestern Illinois' Belleville say they're investigating reports that female students at a Catholic high school secretly were videotaped by one of the school's sports teams.

The Belleville News-Democrat (http://bit.ly/12U5zzL) reports that Police Chief William Clay Jr. isn't discussing publicly details of the case involving the several Althoff Catholic High School females who may have been videotaped.

He says the investigation involves a possible violation of state law barring unauthorized video recording in a restroom or locker room.

Clay says the school's staff did their own investigation of the matter before notifying police May 3.

St. Clair County State's Attorney Brendan Kelly says a special prosecutor has been assigned to the case at his request because of a conflict in his office.
