LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Court documents shed new light into theft allegations against Limestone County Career Technical Center principal Mickey Glass. Glass turned himself in to authorities Monday night.

The documents say Glass stole a nearly $7,000 lawnmower, a $370 chainsaw and a $390 water pump. Limestone County Schools is investigating what is missing, stolen, or illegally obtained.

The documents also reveal more about the Limestone County Sheriff's Department's investigation into Glass. Court documents show investigators started looking into multiple items reported missing from the tech school, then developed Glass as a person of interest.

Glass is referenced in the documents as using a school-funded purchase order number to buy the mower/tractor within the last few weeks. The documents go on to say, "We also have reason to believe Glass has done this multiple times before, as well as selling items belonging to the tech school."

"As a school system that's 108th in funding out of 134 school systems, every loss is substantial to us. Every method must be used to determine just how great the loss is," said Superintendent Dr. Tom Sisk.

Glass was reached for comment multiple times but never answered the phone. He remains on paid leave; the investigation is ongoing.
