Report: School employee took diamond ring, threw it in garbage | Crime
Court documents said a former substitute teacher told an Oregon police officer "steals things he does not need and then discards them."
The Oregon Observer reported that Hideki Yoshida, 44, of Madison, pleaded guilty on April 15 to a felony charge of theft of movable property between $5,000 and $10,000.
Yoshida was accused of taking a diamond wedding ring he found while at Netherwood Knoll Elementary School in January 2013. The Observer reported that Yoshida brought the ring home and threw it in the garbage.
Yoshida resigned as a substitute for the district in October, according to the Observer.
