Detectives assigned to the Burglary and Pawn Unit began investigating the case in September of 2011 after the I-Pad was reported stolen from Dunedin Middle School. On May 8th, 2012, a routine pawn inquiry by detectives revealed that the I-Pad had been sold to a local Best Buy (on April 26, 2012) for $145 by the suspect,  identified as 34-year-old Julia King.

Detectives continued their investigation and subsequently obtained an arrest warrant for the suspect.  King was arrested at a private residence in Palm Harbor at about 2:20 p.m. on Friday, August 24th, 2012; and transported to the Pinellas County Jail without further incident.

According to deputies, King had been employed as a teacher at Dunedin Middle School; and later transferred to East Lake High School.

The investigation continues.
