After a string of thefts at their high school gym, a California student decided to do some investigation of her own, shockingly realizing who the thief was.
Justine Betti was tired of all the stealing during her gym class, so much so that the student decided to hide in her locker during gym class and catch the thief redhanded.
After all the students filed out of the locker room, she was surprised that the gym teacher stayed behind and started rummaging through the students’ backpacks.
Shocked, Betti decided to come back the next day with a cellphone camera. Once again, the teacher stayed behind and took items from the students’ backpacks.
“I didn’t want to believe that she would do something like that because she was so nice, but then she did it,” Betti recalled. “It was really scary. I was like, ‘Oh my gosh. I can’t believe I just got this on video.’”
Eventually, after some coercion from her friends, she brought the video to the principal.
“He said that he’ll investigate it and he told us to delete the video, but I had already sent it to my dad,” the student added. “We feel like we did the right thing, but it’s still kind of hard.”
The teacher has been put on administrative leave and the incident is currently under investigation.
