The Associated Press

LANCASTER, Ohio - A teacher accused of masterminding a theft ring has been indicted, along with a former student. Two other people have been arrested.

A Fairfield County grand jury issued a 32-count indictment Friday against John Dolby, 34, a teacher at the Fairfield Career Center vocational school for 11th- and 12th-grade students.

He is charged with running a ring accused of stealing an estimated $120,000 worth of construction equipment, electronics, laptop computers and kitchen appliances from the building site of the new Pickerington North High School and new homes in the area.

Dolby remains in the county jail and has been placed on paid administrative leave.
