Principal Arrested For Stealing Toilet Paper

By Compiled From Wire Services

Police used a marked roll of toilet paper to put the squeeze on a principal suspected of filching bathroom tissue from his high school.

Dennis Ferriter, 57, was suspended from Tri-County High on Wednesday after a search of his car and office turned up the marked toilet paper and two marked $1 bills that had been placed in a vending machine, Superintendent James Erdman said. The markings could be seen only under ultraviolet light.

No immediate charges were filed. The district attorney is investigating the extent of the thefts.

Authorities suggested Ferriter may have taken the toilet paper for a bed and breakfast he owns. The principal refused to comment Friday.
