    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.
