HOUSTON (December 4, 2013) Tammie Daily, 52, a school principal in Houston, accused of shoplifting about $350 worth of Christmas ornaments and men's clothing from a department store, has been temporarily reassigned, the Houston Independent School District said.
Daily, who’s the principal of Shadydale Elementary School, was arrested Sunday on a misdemeanor theft charge.
An attorney for Daily says the woman put the ornaments in a shopping bag to protect the items and then forgot to pay for them.
Daily, who makes nearly $112,000 a year, is also accused of failing to pay for some cologne, a man's shirt and two ties.
She paid for the items after store personnel stopped her, but was then arrested, charged and later released.
