A former Tennessee elementary school teacher was arrested after police discovered on his home computer more than 50 secretly recorded videos of elementary students changing clothes.

Jarrett Jones, 30, of Nashville, was arrested Monday on charges of especially aggravated sexual exploitation of minors and sexual exploitation of minors, according to multiple media reports.

Jones taught music at Napier Elementary School from 2011-15. Police say he told students to change in the music closet where he had placed a secret recording device.
