Teacher's purse is stolen, students questioned

May 14, 2008

Albany-  Two Middle School students in Albany are being questioned after a teacher's change purse disappeared and hundred of dollars in charges on her credit cards appeared.

Merry Acres Middle School Teacher Irene Tabor's change purse was stolen from her classroom. The day after she reported the theft, she got a phone call at school asking for her personal identification number and she gave it to the caller who she thought was a police officer.

Two days later, money was transferred from her accounts and charges were made to her credit cards.

"Chief Troy Conley, our Chief of Police for the system, tells me this is the only theft incident they've investigated this year so fortunately it's not a wide spread occurrences in the system, but we're all concerned about the security of people's property both employees and students," said R. D. Harter, DCSS Public Information Director.

Two students have been questioned, but as of this afternoon no charges have been filed in the case.
