Officers from the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Hamilton Heights School Corporation custodian on theft and drug related charges on March 10, 2015. Arrested was Nancy Teresa Jasper, age 52, of Cicero, who was employed as a night custodian at Hamilton Heights Primary School.
Sheriff Deputies became involved after a School Resource Officer took a report of the theft of student medications from a locked medicine cabinet in the nurse’s office at Hamilton Heights Primary School in early March. Further investigation into the theft uncovered the additional thefts of medication from at least three (3) students at the Primary School over the course of a two week period. Jasper, who was on-duty during the times of the alleged thefts, was arrested while working at the school.
Deputies stated Jasper was in possession of narcotics and amphetamines allegedly stolen from the nurse’s office as well as a key to the medicine cabinet when she was taken into custody.
Jasper was initially charged* with five (5) counts of A Misdemeanor Theft, and two (2) counts of Level 6 Felony Possession of a Controlled Substance. She was taken to the Hamilton County Jail where she later was released on a $7,500 bond.
The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office maintains two (2) full-time School Resource Officers as well as part-time officers at Hamilton Heights.
