California Elementary Teacher Arrested For Stealing Medication From Students
A California charter school teacher was caught red-handed stealing medication from the Special Education kid’s supply early this week. Via DailyMail:
A California elementary school teacher is being charged with burglary and possession of a controlled substance after authorities allegedly saw surveillance footage that shows her stealing medication from special needs children.
Sheri Haselhuhn, a 40-year-old mother and wife with 14 years of teaching experience, is also allegedly seen in the footage swallowing the medication.
Police were first alerted by officials at Delta Charter school in Clarksburg on Tuesday after one of the student’s medication came up short.
Somehow, the teacher didn’t realize that the medicine supply closet was under surveillance to catch med-thieves just like her…
‘A deputy responded and reviewed the footage, dated April 28, 2014. It showed Haselhuhn removing the medication and ingesting it.’
Haselhuhn was arrested in her West Sacramento home on Wednesday.
The medication has not been identified. Nor have authorities revealed whether the student whose medication she stole was a current pupil of Haselhuhn’s.
Meanwhile, parents of her current and former students expressed their shock and disbelief as news spread of her arrest.
‘She taught my son how to read,’ Linda McCapes, whose son was taught by Sheri Haselhuhn, told CBS Sacramento. ‘She was nice.’
Clearly we’ve seen teachers do worse, but still. She’s supposed to be someone these kids can trust. But after all her years of experience, she somehow didn’t think anyone would realize the medicine was running out too fast OR know that she was being taped? Sounds like she’s the one in need of special education!
