(WUSA9) — LINDEN, CA (KXTV)- A teacher in Linden with nearly 30 years experience has been put on administrative leave after she was recorded with a phone camera, allegedly stealing things from student backpacks.
In the video, the teacher is seen pulling something from one backpack, before she moves to the next, where it's not clear if anything was taken.
"There is an employee being investigated, based on the video," Linden Superintendent Michael Gonzales said.
Gonzales wouldn't confirm the employee is a teacher, or offer that person's name. San Joaquin County Sheriff's spokesperson Les Garcia would confirm a teacher is being investigated for an alleged theft.
