The principal of a Frisco elementary school resigned after police cited him for stealing medicine from the nurse's office and $40 from a secretary's office.
David Wehmeyer, 52, the principal at Corbell Elementry, resigned immediately, according to a note sent home to parents.
A second note sent to parents on Thursday announced school personnel notified police "when they became concerned that student medicine was missing from the nurses' clinic."
Police investigated and cited him with two counts of theft under $50 — a Class C misdemeanor.
Wehmeyer worked in public education for 29 years and at Corbell Elementary for eight years, the district said.
"We take these matters very seriously and are saddened by these events," the letter said.
