IVA, South Carolina (WHNS) — An Anderson woman was arrested after Iva police discovered prescription medicines had been stolen from nurse’s office at Crescent High School, according to Iva Town Attorney Mary McCormac.
The incident happened on Feb. 8.
“During a routine check of medication by the school nurse, she discovered the missing medication. The school resource officer conducted an investigation,” said Assistant Superintendent Kathy Hipp of Anderson County School District Three.
Two juvenile victims were involved. McCormac said the stolen drugs were the victims’ prescribed medications.
Iva police said 26-year-old Morgan Kidd confessed to taking the medicines.
Kidd was arrested Monday and charged with two counts of theft of a controlled substance.
“The theft occurred while Ms. Kidd was working as a substitute teacher,” Hipp said. “She had been a substitute since November of 2015, and she is no longer employed by the school district.”
