Police: teacher stole from school, put the goods on E-Bay

ENDICOTT, N.Y. An upstate school teacher was arrested today, accused of stealing instructional materials from her school and putting the stolen items for sale on the E-Bay Internet auction site.

Authorities say Jo-Ann Peters apparently had been stealing items from the L-W West School in the Union-Endicott School District for several months.

State police executed a search warrant at the teacher's town of Owego home this morning and found a large quantity of things from the school.

An investigator said police discovered instructional materials, a computer and a camera in the residence. He said the stolen property was valued at more than a thousand dollars.

I personally know Mrs. Peters, and I just have to say that she is a WONDERFUL person, and hse would NEVER do this. As mentioned at, Mrs. Peters was most likely contacting her lawyers and family memebers immediately following the incident, NOT the media, resulting in a one-sided story. Having heard her side of the story (but not being at liberty to tell it) she is most obvoiusly innocent!
