Collin County, TX (CBS) - David Wehmeyer, an elementary school principal in Texas, resigned after police allege he admitted to stealing student medication from the school nurse’s office, reports CBS DFW.

Police say school surveillance video shows the principal entering the nurse’s office on Saturday, Feb. 1. In addition, police claim Wehmeyer admitted he took two $20 bills out of the school secretary’s office.

Parents of students at the school say they are shocked to hear of the allegations against Wehmeyer.

“Every morning, he was always there, in front of the door and he was so helpful with everyone, so that’s why I’m really in shock. I had no idea that was the motive for him to resign, it’s really heartbreaking,” Dary Douglas, whose daughter attends pre-K at the school, told CBS DFW.

A spokeswoman for Frisco Independent School District said the district is taking the matter very seriously, is saddened by what happened, and believes Wehmeyer’s resignation was in the best interest of all involved, according to the station.

Police reportedly issued Wehmeyer two citations for theft of less than $50. Investigators said he was cooperative during the investigation.
