TRUMBULL, Conn. -- A janitor at Daniels Farm School in Trumbull was charged with stealing gift cards that a group of students had donated to a sick teacher, according to the Connecticut Post.
Police told the Connecticut Post that a group of students had gathered $150 in gift cards and a get well card and placed them in the teacher's mailbox. The principal of the school later complained to police that the cards had been stolen out of the mailbox, the Connecticut Post reported.
Police investigated and found that the gift cards had been used at a local gas station, supermarket and restaurant, the Connecticut Post said. When they checked surveillance footage, they saw the school's janitor, 30-year-old Andrew Robinson of Bethany, the Connecticut Post reported.
Robinson reportedly told police that he thought the gift cards were meant for him, according to the Connecticut Post. He was charged with sixth-degree larceny.
