A string of thefts from Seymour-Jackson Elementary School led to the arrest of a third-grade teacher.

“The Tribune” in Seymour is reporting that 46-year-old Meredith Charlton faces Class A misdemeanor charges of Theft after an investigation by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department.

The paper says that earlier this month, a school resource officer was notified of a series of thefts at the school. Last week, surveillance cameras were placed in the office of the school. That same day, money was marked and placed in a desk in the office.
