OCALA – A junior sleuth, using his cell phone, videotaped a veteran teacher going through student lockers at North Marion High School on Thursday.
Steven Simmons, a teacher with more than 20 years service, was arrested and charged with grand theft.
The student placed his black, Samsung slider cell phone in an empty locker inside the boys’ locker room to catch whoever might be stealing money. The recording was 24 minutes and 32 seconds long.
At 3:40 p.m., six students brought the phone to Deputy Tasha Nix, a school resource officer.
