Court papers say the principal inventoried keys and discovered the part-time janitor had a key to a workroom where some of the thefts occurred but did not have authorization to be in the room. Granite School District police interviewed the janitor and she admitted to taking cash, checks and two boxes of Girl Scout cookies.

The 18-year-old has been charged with a felony count of theft and misdemeanor counts of theft and burglary.
