(Scroll down for video) A school employee was arrested after he was caught with videos of high school students using the bathroom, according to police.

An investigation into child pornography on the Internet, led to the arrest of a high school maintenance worker.

Authorities said that Josh Ensley, who worked at the Paideia School in DeKalb County, had several DVDs of child pornography in his home, but what police found next was even more surprising.

The nine-page criminal complaint said that police found videos of high school students using the bathroom. After interrogation, Ensley admitted that he had used a camera the size of a lighter to record students relieving themselves over several years.

On Thursday, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service arrested Ensley at his Tucker, Georgia home.

Police said that Ensley admitted recording students as far back as 2007.

The Paideia School sent a letter to parents saying: "Mr. Ensley, who is currently in the custody of federal authorities, was fired."

The criminal complaint said that Ensley admitted to police that he used a small camera and video recorded the girls and boys in the bathroom of the school where he worked as a maintenance worker.

Ensley continued that he hid the camera in a hollowed freshener and in a broomstick in the bathroom.

Some parents were surprised to hear that students were recorded for five years.

"I think when people have a disease like that, they will be covert about it as they can be," father Kanji Mukti, whose son is a student at the school, said.

The school said it is cooperating fully with investigators in this case.

The U.S. District Attorney's Office has not said whether it has identified any students caught on the video other than to say the investigation is ongoing.
