TAYLORS, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a middle school nurse in South Carolina has been arrested after she stole medicine that was supposed to be given to a student.

Greenville County deputies told media outlets that the principal at Northwood Middle School in Taylors asked for the investigation.

Investigators say they found one student had many fewer pills than expected and also found 37-year-old nurse Dawn Mcgill forged a document to try and hide the theft.

Deputies didn't say what kind of medicine was stolen.

Mcgill is charged with forgery and theft of a controlled substance. School officials say she resigned Friday about the time she was arrested.

It wasn't known if Mcgill had a lawyer.
