The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) had been investigating a reported theft of prescription medications (Percocet and Adderall) from a locked medicine cabinet. The prescriptions were being properly monitored by the school nurse and was promptly reported when some of the pills turned up missing, according to a media release.

Additional investigation and assistance from school officials resulted in the arrest of  school principal Christopher Scott Calhoun, 44, of Chillicothe, for 2 counts of the alleged theft.

Calhoun has since been charged in Livingston County Associate Circuit Court with the alleged 2 counts of class D felony Stealing with bond initially set at $10,000 cash.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 28.
