Charges have been dropped against an Underwood teacher accused of stealing prescription pads to obtain pain medication, but charges against his wife remain.
A judge on Friday dismissed charged against Heath Telleen, who teaches at Underwood High School. His wife, Samantha Telleen, faces up to 90 years in prison if she's convicted of the nine counts against her.
Assistant Pottawattamie County Attorney Shelly Sedlak says an investigation revealed Samantha Telleen - not her husband - took prescription pads from Underwood Family Practice.
Prosecutors say Samantha Telleen was given the key to the building last year to check mail and faxes while the owners were away.
Samantha Telleen is a special education teacher at Underwood Middle School. She is on paid leave.
