On April 30, detectives began an investigation after a school employee reported suspicious images on an electronic storage device at the school. The sheriff's office says images were taken from a camera in a changing room between Jan. 2013 and Dec. 2015. Guilford County Schools says Reeves resigned May 1 when he learned of the investigation.
