VINTON, LA (KPLC) -

An investigation into missing medication at Vinton Elementary School has led to the arrest of the school's former principal, according to Vinton Police Chief Ricky Fox.

Fox tells KPLC that 43-year-old Angela Dolores Braud, of Sulphur, faces two charges of obtaining a controlled dangerous substance by fraud and two counts of theft under $500.

Judge Ronald Ware set Braud's bond at $42,500.

Fox said a complaint, filed Aug. 23 by a parent, prompted the investigation.

"Officers responded to the school and interviewed the parent and the school nurse, who had reported the missing medication to the parent," he said.

Fox said a subsequent request for investigation was made by Calcasieu Parish Superintendent Wayne Savoy.

"The investigation revealed that approximately 129 pills prescribed for the treatment of ADD/ADHD could not be accounted for involving the school years of 2012 and 2013 and developed a person of interest in the thefts," Fox said.

Fox said Braud was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center at around 12:30 p.m. Thursday.

The investigation continues.

School Board officials say Braud was placed on suspension on Aug. 26 and her role is being filled. They are also investigating the matter.
