A Crystal Lake Central High School student was charged Thursday with hiding a pinhole camera in a boys’ locker room.
Luke Patrick Gildea, 17, of Crystal Lake, was charged with one count each of felony unauthorized video recording and unauthorized video recording of a victim under 18, according to Crystal Lake police.
