Here’s a video about a Linden High School sophomore in California,  who caught a teacher believed to be stealing money from student backpacks.

The video from from ABC News10  KXTV in Sacramento says that  student Justine Betti recently became determined to find out what was happening after kids in her gym class began noticing money was missing from their backpacks.

She was reported to have hid in a locker to see who was stealing the money and when she realized it was a teacher, she hid again, this time with a phone that could take video, to catch the action, after setting up a camera in another locker.

“I didn’t want to believe that she would do something like that because she was so nice, but then she did it,” Betti was quoted by the station as saying.

The teacher is now on administrative leave, the station reported, and the case is under investigation by the school district and the sheriff’s department.
