Former Palm Beach Gardens High School's athletic director William Weed was arrested Monday after an investigation that started in February.

A police report states that he used a covert camera to obtain videos and images of a female juvenile.

Police and the U.S. Marshal Service South Florida/Caribbean Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested Weed Monday.

They booked him into the Palm Beach County Jail, and he was later released on bond Monday night.

The Palm Beach County School District had previously reassigned Weed.

Detectives seized several electronic devices from Weed's home in February.

He faces charges of video voyeurism and unlawful use of  a two-way communication device.

Police said there is no evidence of any other victims.

The Palm Beach County School District released the following statement Monday:

We are disappointed when any employee faces criminal charges, and it is particularly disheartening when the allegations involve a crime against a minor. At this time, it does not appear that the individual used his professional role to exploit students at his school. The Division of Professional standards investigation is ongoing.
