    Press Argus: Substitute teacher arrested (Jan 16 2013)

    Keith W. Dickens of Van Buren was arrested Tuesday evening after it was reported that he had used his phone to take photos of two second-grade boys in a bathroom at Tate Elementary, said Crawford County Chief Deputy Jim Damante. While using the urinals in the bathroom Tuesday, the two boys saw an arm holding a cell phone extend from the adjacent stall, they told police. The phone faced each boy as they moved around the room, they said. When they left the bathroom, the boys told a female teacher who was standing outside about the incident, Damante said.


    Deputies are pursuing a search warrant for Dickens' phone, which they have in custody. They plan to use technology to try to recover any video or photos that would relate to the case, Damante said. "It's a very good possibility that we can get forensic analysts to recover those images," Damante said.
