TX - Last week, elementary school special education teacher Lisa Minton Kubena, 48, was arrested after she stole prescription drugs from a student.
It began with a phone call from a concerned parent about a week ago. The parent told school district superintendent Randy Snider that school pills were missing from her child's prescription medication bottle, and she wanted to know why.
The school decided to take matters into its own hands. Three times a day they began counting the pills in the bottle, and they purchased a video camera and put it in the nurses room. What they discovered was Kubena stealing pills.
Kubena later admitted to stealing the Adderall, which is a medication for children with ADHD. Currently it is believed she took them for personal use.
"She had medical issues and possibly up to six months ago she started taking a few pills," said Sheriff Greg Taylor. A few grew into 13 because Taylor says that's how many went missing right before her arrest.
Kubena has been put on administration leave until the investigation is over. Kubena has been with the school district for five years and has never presented any problems in the past.
