ELKMONT, Ala. (WHNT) – Court documents reveal over $7,500 worth of property missing from Limestone County Career Technical Center after a theft that the school principal is charged with.
Mickey Charles Glass, age 40, of Elkmont, Alabama, was arrested on Monday and charged with Theft of Property First Degree.
The complaint against Glass lists a Toro lawnmower, chain saw, and water/pool pump as the items missing from the school. The items are valued at $7,559.99.
Glass is currently on leave as principal of the Limestone County Career Technical Center and is the subject of a continuing investigation requested by the Limestone County Board of Education following allegations of theft.
Limestone County Schools Superintendent Tom Sisk told WHNT News 19 the arrest stems from an anonymous tip he received last month about the possibility of missing items at the school.
“I’m shocked and I’m disappointed,” said Sisk. “I went to the campus and went looking for specific things. When I couldn’t find them I questioned him [Glass], and when I didn’t get the answers I wanted he was placed on paid leave.”
Mickey Glass was released from the Limestone County jail after posting a $5,000 bond, and remains on paid administrative leave. School system officials said Tanner High School Assistant Principal Vince Green will serve as interim principal at the LCTC while the case plays out.
