ATLANTA — A school nurse at a Cobb County middle school was arrested last week and charged with taking more than $1,500 worth of pills from the school clinic.
According to an arrest warrant, 38-year-old Lindsey Waggoner, of Kennesaw, stole drugs, including Adderall, Methylphenidate, Dexmethylphenidate, Evekeo and Focalin.
Waggoner was a nurse at Barber Middle School.
In a statement from the Cobb County School district, they said they "Cobb Schools police immediately launched an investigation when alerted that medicine was missing. The investigation led to the arrest of a staff member."
The FDA says these drugs are for the treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Narcolepsy.
According to the Mayo Clinic, Adderall is a Schedule II controlled substance, which means there is a high risk for addiction or abuse and is why any usage should be closely monitored by a medical professional.
A total of 209 pills were taken from the clinic on Sept. 17, police said.
11Alive has reached out for comment from county school officials, but has not received a response as of this point.
Waggoner faces one felony count of theft by taking. She was arrested Thursday and released the same day on $15,000 bond.
