School Spy-Cam Case Gets Bigger

Turns out that the cop shop knew all about those school-issued spycam computers.

...lawyers said the use of the software was no secret. On at least two occasions, the district turned over pictures and other information to Lower Merion police so they could help track stolen laptops.

The district even set up a secure Web site so the police could have access to pictures and other information, according to attorneys in the case.

"Quite honestly, the police knew about these devices," said Marc Neff, a lawyer representing Perbix. "They were not in the dark about the fact that these computers were being tracked."

Lower Merion Township Police Superintendent Michael J. McGrath did not return calls seeking comment.

That should come as no surprise; there's this matter of "warrants," and "probable cause," and stuff like that.
