In nearby Franklin,Tennessee, a man has just been indicted for a camera that was allegedly found in a girls restroom/changing room last year. WGNS' Ron Jordan filed this report in January of 2021...


Arrested was 34-year-old Andrew Wayne Halford. Reports from deputies confirmed that Halford was taken into custody by Williamson County authorities and booked into the Williamson County Jail in Franklin on Thursday, July 7, 2022. Prior to being booked in Franklin, he was being held in Smith County, Tennessee. As of Friday evening, he was still behind bars in Williamson County.

The camera is believed to have been in the bathroom since September of 2020, prior to it being found in 2021. Most of the 60-victims recorded on the camera were minors, according to authorities. At this point, Halford faces seven counts of aggravated unlawful photography of a minor charges in Williamson County. 

Halford, a former cheer and tumbling coach, worked in both Franklin and Carthage, Tennessee. Smith County deputies previously charged Halford in their case, which will go to court later this year in October.
