CARMEL, Ind. (WISH) – The Carmel Police Department has launched an investigation after receiving a complaint that Carmel High School students had inappropriate photos on electronic devices.

According to police, investigators contacted the Carmel Clay School Administration and immediately initiated an investigation after receiving the complaint on Tuesday.

According to Lt. Joe Bickel, spokesman for the CPD, the incident obviously involves juveniles so it’s a sensitive investigation. Bickel said they’re limited on what details they can release.

Once the investigation is complete, police will speak with the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office to see if any laws were violated and if charges will be filed.

According to Bickel, the images are digital and could be any number of things, including: illegal drugs or explicit pictures. Police said they’re trying to protect the students involved at this time.

Police would not release how many photos there were or how many students were involved in the incident.

Both the police department and the school district are working on the investigation together. Police said it’s an open and active investigation.

Carmel High School does not release disciplinary actions on students, according to Bickel.

When 24-Hour News 8 contacted Carmel High School on Friday, school officials said they had no comment.
