Sheriff Chris Mathes, however, says his department hasn’t started its investigation yet, and is unsure if any criminal activity has taken place. Still, his office will be looking into the allegations against Tolley, which Mathes said are “theft-related.”

For now, however, Tolley isn’t working, according to school officials.
