COVINGTON, Ga. — A Flint Hill Elementary School teacher will appear in front of a judge on Dec. 18 after an alleged shoplifting incident at Walmart months prior.
Shannon Lynne Teague was arrested by the Covington Police Department on Aug. 19 and charged with theft by shoplifting. She spent less than six hours in the Newton County Jail.
"Ms. Teague under-rang several items of meats from the self-checkout register and passed all points of sales," according to the CPD incident report.
The total amount of the theft was $95.35, according to the report.
"We are aware of the situation involving Ms. Teague as she self-reported the incident to her supervisor," NCSS Public Relations Director Sherri Davis told The Covington News. "We will continue to monitor the case as it works its way through legal proceedings."
Teague will be represented by an attorney. If there are any conflicts — on the attorney's side — with the court case being held on Dec. 18, the date may change, according to the Covington Municipal Court.
