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.
