Principal, teacher face felony embezzlement charges in Caswell County for pawning school property

Two women, including the principal at Bartlett Yancey High School, were arrested after the Caswell County School superintendent filed a report regarding stolen school property.
Emily Elizabeth Hill, 25, and Precilla Jean Stone, 46, both of Danville, Va.,  were arrested for felony embezzlement.
Investigators first found that Hill was selling property, belonging to the Caswell County Board of Education, to a local pawn shop.
That led them to discover that other property from the school system was being sold at the same pawn shop.
Police said the two were pawning computers. One pawned three computers and the other took one computer and an iPad from various county schools.
Hill faces charges for one count of felony embezzlement and one count of felony larceny. Her bond was set at $2,000 and her first court date is set for Feb. 11 in Caswell County District Court.
Caswell County Sheriff’s Capt. Frank Rose confirmed Hill is a teacher at an alternative school in Caswell County.
Stone, principal at Bartlett Yancey High, faces charges for seven counts of felony embezzlement. Her bond was set at $15,000 and she is scheduled to appear in Caswell County District Court Feb. 18.
