The Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office has arrested a Nacogdoches High School cafeteria worker accused of owning numerous images and recordings of child pornography.

Justin Owen Lejeune, 31, is charged with second-degree possession of child pornography, with additional charges pending.

Sheriff Jason Bridges confirmed Lejeune works in the cafeteria at Nacogdoches High School.

Bridges said his office had received information that Lejeune had set up surveillance cameras in his home and was secretly recording visitors in the bathroom.

The sheriff's office conducted an investigation into the allegations and executed a search warrant Thursday morning at the home on FM 3314.

"This is the largest one I have seen, and at the end of it, it could be the largest one in the history of the county," Bridges said.

At the home, investigators found hidden cameras throughout the home which were aimed in secluded locations, such as bathrooms and guest bedrooms, Bridges said. During the search, investigators started finding massive amounts of pornography in Lejeune's bedroom, Bridges said. A brief search of his computer found several images of child pornography, Bridges said.

Investigators also found numerous homemade video recordings. Bridges said people were unknowingly being videotaped while inside the home. Investigators seized three computers, DVDs, notebooks and several other components of pornography, Bridges said.

Bridges said investigators found Lejeune at NHS and interviewed him. Bridges said Lejeune confessed to owning the child pornography and to secretly recording a guest at his home. He was then arrested.

Bridges said he believes the evidence shows Lejeune has been making and recording the videos for more than five years. He said numerous names were inside his journal and that numerous victims may not know they were recorded.

Lufkin police are assisting with the investigation by analyzing computer forensics.

NISD spokeswoman Rayanne DuChane said Lejeune was fired immediately following the arrest.

She said he worked for the district as the lead cook and prepared food and occasionally served meals in the cafetaria line. He has been working for the district since March 2010.

Despite the evidence found in the home, Bridges does not believe Lejeune's activity ever made it to the school.

"I want to be clear on this, at this point, we have no evidence that leads us to believe that anything happened on campus," Bridges said.
