TABOR CITY, N.C. (AP) - Authorities say a fifth-grade teacher at Tabor City Elementary School has been charged with stealing medication from other staff members after authorities found stolen Oxycodone and Xanax in her car.

Multiple news outlets report 54-year-old Jamie Norris Ford was charged Friday with larceny of medication, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a schedule IV controlled substance with intent to sell and deliver among other charges.

Authorities say sheriff’s office deputies were investigating thefts of prescription medications at the school. During the investigation Ford gave deputies consent to search her vehicle, where they found medications that did not belong to her. Authorities say the medicine belonged to another teacher.

Ford was booked into the Columbus County Jail on $50,000 bail. It is unclear if she has a lawyer.
