HANCOCK COUNTY, Miss. (WLOX/Gray News) - A high school principal in Mississippi is facing charges of shoplifting from a Walmart.
Amy Yarborough Necaise is facing misdemeanor shoplifting charges for three different visits to Walmart in Hancock County.
The Bay-Waveland School District announced the school board has accepted the resignation of Necaise from her employment as principal of Bay High School.
“While the district does not intend to comment on the ongoing criminal matters concerning Dr. Necaise, we believe that it is in the best interest of student achievement to accept this resignation and continue great progress in the school district,” the district said in a news release Friday.
According to affidavits from the Waveland Police Department, Necaise recently left the store without paying for $123.66 worth of items Aug. 20.
Documents show Necaise is accused of also leaving without paying for $25.24 worth of merchandise on Aug. 1. She is accused of leaving without paying $51.25 worth of items on Aug. 15 from the same Walmart.
WLOX reached out to the school board and superintendent multiple times but has been given no comment on the situation at this time.
However, on the Bay Waveland School District website, a position for the Bay High School principal is posted.
