Officers responded to LaGrange High School at 561 N. Greenwood St. just before 3 p.m. on Wednesday on a call regarding illegal and illicit images found on campus.

A student used a school email account to allegedly send an inappropriate video of herself, said Lt. Dale Strickland with the LaGrange Police Department.

The email was flagged by the school’s computer system, he added.

It is not clear to whom the email was sent to.

The case is being investigated as the distribution of pornography, Strickland stated.

Two witnesses told LaGrange police officers they saw a middle aged African American man wearing a brown jacket and black toboggan hat get inside the SUV and drive away, according to a report.
