Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin police arrested a Waukegan man Thursday and released more details after two hidden cameras were found inside the women's locker room of a fitness facility.

Police were called to RecPlex Monday evening after a member noticed a camera and alerted an employee. Hidden cameras were found in an upper and lower locker, and police believe they have been there since early January.

Karl J. Landt, 36, was charged with 11 felony counts of Capture an Image of Nudity Without Consent. According to the criminal complaint, three of the images appear to be juvenile females.

Police say Melissa A. Wenckebach, 27, of Pleasant Prairie, admitted placing the cameras in the locker room. She's charged with a felony count of Representations Depicting Nudity.

Investigators are still trying to learn how much video was collected, how the video was used, whether it was distributed and if the cameras were also placed in other locations inside the locker room.
