Green Bay Police say a school district employee accused of stealing medications intended for students has been arrested.
According to a release from the Green Bay Area Public School District, complaints regarding missing medications at 8 elementary schools began in late February. The district’s protocols and procedures for storing and handling students’ medication, led to early discovery that the pills were missing.
The district then performed an audit which found discrepancies between the pills provided by parents in March and April and the number in storage.
Police have identified the employee as 25-year-old Cameron Drake of Suamico, who worked as a groundskeeper for the district. The district said parents of the affected students have been notified and it is working with them to replace the medications where necessary.
