(WHAS11) -- A Bullitt County Schools employee is off the job after police said he was stalking a student.

Christopher Tolle is facing charges of burglary and stalking.  School officials said he was harassing a student from Bullitt East High School.

Tolle and the girl’s family knew each other because he’d done some work at their house.
Authorities said he made a copy of a house key and went after some very personal items.

“He had left his second time, when he was not supposed to be there he left a camera there that had some inappropriate photographs of him holding her underwear in the house,” Eric Farris, attorney for Bullitt County Schools, said.

Tolle is a computer technician for the district and has worked for the school system since January without any problems.

According to the police report, Tolle became obsessed with the student, started giving gifts and wanted to know her whereabouts.

Through out the investigation school authorities said they also discovered something else.

“Since he’s been discharged on suspension, a jump drive was found at his desk that had some inappropriate photos and they have been turned over to the police.  But none of these had come to light at all during his time in the school district,” Farris said.

School officials said they don’t think any contact happened between Tolle and the student on campus, but they are investigating to see if the time he spent at Bullitt East was for legitimate reasons.

We were unable to reach Tolle for his side of the story.
