Madison School Kids Find Hidden Cameras in Hotel Room

Wonder if it was someone in the group or someone from outside?

The discovery of recording devices in some guest rooms of the Hyatt Regency hotel in downtown Minneapolis has prompted an investigation by police.

Authorities confirmed to ABC News that they’re looking into the matter.

A spokesperson for Wisconsin’s Madison Metropolitan School District told¬†Minneapolis ABC affiliate KSTP¬†that some of their students found hidden cameras in their Minneapolis hotel rooms while on a school trip.

Per protocol, a school staffer who was accompanying the students on the trip was put on administrative leave as a precaution, the spokesperson said.

“The safety and security of guests and colleagues is a top priority at Hyatt Regency Minneapolis,” Mark Bastic, general manager of the Minneapolis Hyatt Regency, told KSTP in a statement. “As soon as we learned about this situation, we contacted local authorities immediately and conducted a thorough property-wide search for unauthorized recording devices; no additional devices have been found.”

    Since it sounds like cameras were found in more than 1 room and just rooms the school used, sounds like it was the kids or the adult.

    Looks like a pointed finger to me, but then, the staffer could have been a handy fall-guy.

    Dad, that’s what I was thinking to. Since they usually are more than 1 chaperone, why did they single out this person?

    Cottage Grove Police Chief Dan Layber said Friday that his department helped Minneapolis officers execute a search warrant at a home Thursday morning.
